NBC is ready to explore the world of esports.

The network has handed out a script order to The Squad, a multicamera comedy that reteams former Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki with writer Anthony Del Broccolo.

Penned by Del Broccolo, The Squad revolves around a new group of friends (and sometimes enemies) who find companionship and common ground in their mutual love of esports. The potential series explores what it means to finally find "your tribe" after years of feeling like an outsider.

Del Broccolo will write the script and executive produce alongside Galecki and his Warner Bros. TV-based Alcide Bava Productions banner. The company's Holly Brown will also exec produce, with Cory Wood set as a producer.

Other Big Bang grads have also lined up their next gigs. Emmy nominee Mayim Bialik is set to star in the Fox comedy Carla— set up with a sizable series commitment penalty — which is being exec produced by Jim Parsons. That project also hails from WBTV, where most of the cast is under overall deals. For his part, Parsons also exec produces Netflix's Emmy-nominated shortform series Special.
