Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, the creative team behind The Big Bang Theory, is planning a prequel of the top rated CBS comedy.

The show will center around the young version of Emmy winner Jim Parsons’ Dr. Sheldon Cooper. Insiders describe the project as Malcolm in the Middle but with a young and potentially teenage version of Sheldon. During Big Bang‘s run many references have been made to Sheldon’s childhood, growing up as a gifted youngster in Texas with a religious mother. A potential Sheldon prequel would likely have to involve Laurie Metcalf, who has recurred throughout the show’s 10-year run as Mary Cooper, Sheldon’s mom.

The Big Bang Theory is in its 10th season with discussions on for an 11th.
