From Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro, and Jim Parsons, the sitcom prequel “is described as a Malcolm in the Middle-esque single-camera family comedy centered on the child prodigy Sheldon (Armitage) character at age 10. He lives in Texas with his older brother George, fraternal twin sister (Missy), their mother Mary Cooper (Perry), an overtly devout Evangelical Christian; and father George Cooper, an alcoholic who was never around.”
Armitage, who currently appears on HBO’s Big Little Lies, will play young Sheldon. Meanwhile, Zoe Perry has been cast as Sheldon’s mother, Mary. The casting is not by chance. Perry is the daughter of Lauri Metcalf, who plays Mary on The Big Bang Theory.
