CBS’ Comedy series “Mom,” which was created by Chuck Lorre, re-airs its first season in CBS’ corporate sibling TBS. Read on for more details on this story.
Deadline reported that Warner Bros. TV, producer of the comedy series, has landed a deal with TBS. The deal will include the re-airing of CBS’ comedy “Mom” in a four-week run. It will feature all episodes of the first season of the mother-daughter comedy, airing behind the cable network’s highly rated repeats of “The Big Bang Theory.”
Lorre expressed in a statement that he hopes that viewers acquainted with the show will start an ongoing relationship with it.
“I’m very excited that TBS has agreed to run the first season,” said Lorre in the Deadline article.
Lorre is a television writer, director, producer and composer. He has created successful sitcoms such as “Grace Under Fire,” “Cybill,” “Dharma & Greg,” “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory.” He has also served as executive producer on the shows “Roseanne” and “Mike & Molly.”
The four-week marathon is a crucial deal for Warner Bros. TV, who has been very protective of the series. The network did not even make them available online to preserve its value. “Mom” has not been sold off network yet, signaling that the move might be a change in perspective for the studio, indicating its commitment, as is CBS, to continuing the series for a second season.
“Mom” premiered on Sept. 23, 2013 on CBS and stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney.
On March 13, 2014, CBS announced the second season renewal of “Mom.” That’s it for “Mom” to re-air in TBS. For more details on celebrities, movies and your favorite TV shows, make it a habit to stay tuned here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
