L.A. Screenings: New from Warner Bros. International TV Distribution

The brand-new The Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon is one of the series on the L.A. Screenings roster for Warner Bros. International Television Distribution (WBITD).

The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons narrates as adult Sheldon in the new comedy Young Sheldon, which features 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper, who is growing up in East Texas.

WBITD will also be screening for international buyers Splitting Up Together. Based on the Danish series, it tells the story of a couple whose marriage is reignited by their divorce.

SNL alum Bobby Moynihan stars in Me, Myself & I, a comedy about the defining moments in one man’s life over three distinct periods—as a 14-year-old in 1991, at age 40 in present day and at age 65 in 2042.

Another highlight is Life Sentence. In the series, Stella spent the last eight years living like she was dying (because she was). But when Stella finds out that her cancer has been cured, she is suddenly forced to face the long-term consequences of the “live in the moment” decisions she made.

By the Book, meanwhile, is a comedy about a modern day man at a crossroads in his life. He decides to live strictly in accordance with the Bible.

There are also the dramas Deception and Black Lightning. Deception features superstar magician Cameron Black, whose career is ruined by scandal, leaving him only one place to turn to practice his art of deception, influence and illusion: the FBI. Using every trick in the book and inventing new ones, he will help the government catch the world’s most elusive criminals while staging the biggest illusions of his career. Black Lightning is based on the characters from DC. With crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns.
