About Bill Prady

Bill Prady came from relatively humble roots in Detroit, Michigan, to become one of the biggest executive producers for US television today.

He has a string of successful TV series behind him, including, most famously, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ (or TBBT). He was just an executive producer of the series.
