Production on a new season of “The Big Bang Theory” is being delayed due to a contract dispute with its top actors.

The Warner Brothers Television studio, which makes television’s most popular comedy for CBS, said that Wednesday’s scheduled first day of work after the summer hiatus has been postponed.

The Hollywood Reporter says Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki currently make $325,000 per episode. They’re negotiating as a group and want salary increases to as high as $1 million per episode as well as a cut of the back-end profits.

Contract disputes aren’t unusual at popular, long-running TV series. It’s unclear how long the impasse would have to take before it would cause a delay in episodes getting on the air. (AP)
