Bates is to be the primary star of 'Disjointed', which has been snapped up for 20 episodes by Netflix.
Following massive successes with the likes of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and ‘Two and a Half Men’, writer Chuck Lorre’s new sitcom ‘Disjointed’ has found a home on Netflix for its debut season, and has also announced its star in the form of Kathy Bates.
Having been the subject of bidding wars between traditional networks and streaming services, Netflix has landed Lorre’s new project and has snapped up 20 episodes. Co-written by Lorre and ‘The Daily Show’s David Javerbaum and produced by Warner Bros, it’s to be shot in front of an audience in a ‘multi-camera’ style.

Rumours that the CBS sitcom would be ending after the upcoming sixth season were confirmed by McCarthy and executive producer Chuck Lorre on Monday.
Melissa McCarthy has reacted with shock and sadness at the apparent news that her role as Molly Flynn in ‘Mike & Molly’ will be coming to an end at the end of its current season.
The 45 year old actress, also a star of Bridesmaids, Spy and Tammy and due to feature in the rebooted Ghostbusters, took to Twitter late on Monday (December 14th) seemingly to confirm that the CBS sitcom was being cancelled.
“I was shocked and heartbroken when @CBS canceled #MikeAndMolly. I would have shot this show for 50 more years. I'll miss my 2nd family,” she wrote. Fellow cast members Katy Mixon and Reno Wilson quickly re-tweeted her post.

An extract of Jon Cryer's autobiography has been released and it details some very interesting, if not somewhat disturbing, incidents from Cryer's experience working with his former 'Two and a Half Men' co-star, Charlie Sheen.
Jon Cryer's autobiography, So What Happened?, is due to be released on April 7th. Fortunately for us, some of the most interesting sections have been pre-released and they largely concern the antics of Cryer's former Two and a Half Men star, Charlie Sheen. 49-year-old Cryer's depiction of Sheen is similar to how he is depicted in the public eye: wild, controversial and frequently embroiled in unusual relationships.
Jon Cryer's autobiography will be released in April.
49 year old Cryer kept professional and quiet during the Sheen sacking controversy four years ago, but his new memoir reveals all.
Charlie Sheen’s antics over recent years have become the stuff of legend, but one of the closest people to him kept largely quiet about what it was like to work alongside him. Until now.
Sheen’s ‘Two and a Half Men’ co-star Jon Cryer, except for a small handful of interviews, has never spilled the beans on what it was like to be around him on a daily basis, wisely choosing to quietly get on with his job and earn millions of dollars as part of the wildly popular comedy.

In a segment usually reserved for long jokes and general rambling, Lorre posted a black and white photography of Leonard Nimoy with the simple yet touching caption reading: 'The impact you had on our show and on our lives is everlasting', following the latest episode which aired in the US on March 5th 2015 on CBS.

Well, Sheen did warn us in advance.
So if you've been keeping up with Two and a Half Men, you've noticed two things - first off, it ended. Second, there was a notable lack of Charlie Sheen in the final episode. After Uncle Charlie's return was teased online for months on end, fans expecting to see the tiger-blooded star were disappointed on Thursday night, when the episode aired and uncle Charlie was a no-show.
No Charlie Sheen in the finale? Then what was the point of all this?
We may never know the behind-the-scenes reasons for his absence, but here's what happened to the fictional character - and why he didn't make it into the finale.

'Two and a Half Men' is set for a gay wedding.
Though we probably shouldn't have ruled out anything given the past couple of years on 'Two and a Half Men', but we really, really didn't see this one coming. According to The Wrap, Ashton Kutcher's character Walden is to propose to Jon Cryer's Alan in the show's final season.

"Walden has a near-death experience," CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler told the industry website, "It forces him into sort of this existential quandary and to evaluate the meaning of his life, the quality of his life, which prompts him to say, 'I need to put down deeper roots.' And he wants to adopt a child."

Want more Big Bang? CBS have granted your wish, for three more seasons at least
For a show to get a pilot is amazing. For it to get picked up, that’s a stunning achievement. A second season is what dreams are made of for writers and actors alike. But to go 10 seasons is utopia. That’s exactly what “The Big Bang Theory” – which started back in 2007 (can you believe it?) – has done as CBS order a further three seasons.
The Big Bang Theory Is Back For Three More Seasons
The pantheon of 10-season + sitcoms includes big hitters like “Friends” and “Frasier” and “Two And a Half Men” – all behemoths of the small screen, and Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, Rajesh and Penny are set to join those illustrious ranks, and have made millions along the way.
