Johnny Galecki and CBS reunite for Bait and Tackle
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki is returning to CBS for the multi camera comedy series Bait and Tackle.
This will be the network’s second go at the project after the series narrowly missed a pilot order last season. Per the report, the new iteration focuses on an “eclectic group of friends who run a bait and tackle shop in their small hometown of Bainbridge, Georgia.” The series will follow their exploits “as they search for love, purpose and happiness in the type of town you can’t wait to leave, but nobody does.”
Brian Kelley of the country music duo Florida Georgia Line will produce the series while Mike Hobert and Adrian Wenner will co-write the script. The series will be produced by Warner Bros. under Galecki’s Alcide Bala banner.
Galecki has been developing a number of projects since his stint with The Big Bang Theory ended in May. He served as executive producer on CBS’ Living Biblically as well as the film The Master Cleanse.
