Kaley Cuoco, star of HBO Max’s breakout hit “The Flight Attendant” and “Harley Quinn,” is extending her long-standing creative partnership with Warner Bros. Television Group with an expansive and exclusive new multiyear pact with her banner, Yes, Norman Productions. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Under the terms of the deal, Cuoco and her team, led by EVP Suzanne McCormack, will continue to develop original programming for all of WarnerMedia’s platforms, streaming services, cable and broadcast networks.
“Warner Bros. has been my home away from home for as long as I can remember which makes this partnership so special on every level. I look forward to much-continued success with my extended family!!!!!,” Cuoco effused in a statement. Cuoco’s relationship with Warner Bros. dates back to 2007 and to the debut of “The Big Bang Theory.” The blockbuster hit comedy ran for 12 seasons and 279 episodes, making it the longest-running multi-cam sitcom in TV history.
This is Cuoco’s third overall agreement with Warner Bros. Television Group. In 2017, she formed Yes, Norman Productions and signed her first deal with the studio to develop “The Flight Attendant,” and followed that with a new pact in 2019. She not only starred in, but also developed and executive produced the dramedy based on the 2018 novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian. It premiered on HBO Max on Thanksgiving 2020 and delivered the strongest launch for an original series on HBO Max, including HBO Series titles and Max Originals, per the streamer. Season One has a 98% certified fresh score on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes; the show has been renewed for Season Two. For her work on “The Flight Attendant” Cuoco received multiple nominations from the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Critics Choice Awards and the Golden Globe Awards. She was also nominated for a Producers Guild Award. The show has received nominations from the Directors Guild Awards, Writers Guild Awards, Art Directors Guild Awards and the Motion Picture Sound Editors Golden Reel Awards.
Cuoco recently landed the rights to “Doris Day: Her Own Story,” based on the legendary actress and singer’s official autobiography by A.E. Hotchner. The project is currently in development, with Cuoco slated to star. Cuoco and her banner also acquired the rights to “A Season with Mom” by author Katie Russell Newland.
Cuoco is repped by SDB Partners, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman
