EMMY(R)-NOMINATED TV COMEDY THE BIG BANG THEORY AND BARENAKED LADIES TEAM UP ON SPECIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR HIT SHOW'S THEME SONG

BURBANK, Calif. (July 15, 2011) - TV's #1 comedy - and newly minted Emmy(R) nominee for Outstanding Comedy Series - The Big Bang Theory (Thursdays 8/7c on CBS, premiering September 22) and multi-platinum pop rock group the BARENAKED LADIES have teamed up on a special music video for the band's full-length version of the hit series' theme song. The video was shot on The Big Bang Theory set and gives fans an exclusive insider's look at the hit sitcom, via never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage of the show's table read, rehearsals and episode taping in front of a live studio audience. The band was joined in the video by the stars of the award-winning show: Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar.

Beginning today, the video can be seen at the following link: www.thewb.com/shows/thebigbangtheory

The collaboration on the music video continues the longstanding relationship between the band and the series that was established in 2007 when The Big Bang Theory creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady - who are fans of the band - asked Barenaked Ladies' singer/guitarist Ed Robertson to pen a theme song for the series as a "sort of history of everything ... in about 32 seconds."

The band later made a surprise appearance at The Big Bang Theory's panel session at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2010, performing the song, complete with an audience sing-along.

Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution will feature the video in its campaign to support the off-network launch of The Big Bang Theory in syndication this fall. The Big Bang Theory debuts in syndication September 18, simultaneously on TBS, the Fox Television Stations and broadcast stations across the country, and will air five nights a week.

The music video and a special featurette, complete with interviews with the band, will be available on The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray(TM) and DVD release on September 13

The audio recording will also be featured on the band's upcoming greatest hits package STOP US IF YOU'VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE. The release of the two-CD package will feature never-before-heard rarities as well as some of the band's best-known songs and will be followed by a U.S. tour this summer (see tour dates below).

The announcement of the music video follows the announcement yesterday that The Big Bang Theory was nominated for five Primetime Emmy(R) Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for stars Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons.
