Chuck Lorre is quite the talented TV writer! He's brought to life some of the most original and successful comedy shows, including some of our favourites.
He first wrote for the 1988 sitcom Roseanne, but the real recognition came with his creation of the much-loved Dharma and Greg. The show and its quirky characters were nominated for eight Golden Globes and six Emmys.
A year later in 2003, we met Charlie, Alan and Jake for the first time in Two and a Half Men .The show has since become very popular; in fact its the highest-rated sitcom in America. In 2009 we saw Charlie Sheen booted off the cast for publically insulting Lorre, however the arrival of Ashton Kutcher ensured the shows continued success. It came to a close in its twelfth and final season this year.
In 2007 he teamed up with Bill Prady to bring us the always enjoyable Big Bang Theory . The band of hilarious science enthusiasts, aside from winning a number of awards, spawned one of the largest global followings for a television comedy.
Lorres achievements were honoured in 2009 with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Mike and Molly , which he now produces, continues to bring laughter to our living rooms, this time in the form of TVs most adorable over-eaters.
His most recent project stars Anna Farris, in the dysfunctional family sitcom, Mom .
"I'm an old guitar player who has fallen into television and is so happy he did."
What will he come up with next?
