Jon Favreau to direct 'Young Sheldon' pilot for CBS

CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves said the show will most likely be aired after The Big Bang Theory, providing the show gets renewed, which is said to nearly be a done deal.

CBS has formally ordered the series "Young Sheldon", a prequel to its hit comedy.

Jon Favreau is directing the premiere.

The spinoff, Young Sheldon, is set to debut in the fall with Iain Armitage playing the title character.

Laurie Metcalf, who played Sheldon's devout Christian mother Mary, will pass down her role to her real-life daughter Zoe Perry for the new spin-off. The show follows Parson's Sheldon Cooper and Johnny Galecki's Leonard Hofstadter.

The International Movie Database describes young Sheldon as "the idiosyncratic and neurotic genius as a youth growing up in Texas".

Young Sheldon will center on Sheldon Cooper's rather awkward childhood experiences in Galveston, Texas. While CBS has only renewed one scripted series so far (NCIS), it has a healthy roster to choose from, especially when it comes to comedies.

The network announced Monday that viewers will be able to see what makes Sheldon the way he is in a brand new spin off series.

The series is executive-produced by Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak. Last week, CBS CEO Les Moonves sounded an upbeat note during an investor gathering, declaring that a renewal agreement was "on the two yard line". CBS did not say when or where the show will launch.
