The identical factor might be stated of Lorre’s newest present, Bob Hearts Abishola, with a forged that gels so nicely on display screen. Right here’s what Billy Gardell advised Chicago’s CBS Native about how fortunate he feels to be part of that:
What Chuck does higher than anyone is he finds individuals that you simply consider and folks that you simply consider know one another.

They linked superbly in an actual method. I feel there’s an actual kindness to our present and the collaboration and once more, the ensemble, each character is humorous, each character is attention-grabbing and that’s a Chuck Lorre staple. So, I’m blown away and I’m so grateful for the success of this present this 12 months. Actually am.
