The stars of one of TV's biggest comedy shows, "The Big Bang Theory," are set to resume filming on their eighth season this month... But some of its leads reportedly don't have contracts yet.
Deadline.com reports the five original stars of the show are negotiating, but if they don't hammer down deals soon, production may be delayed.
CBS says its confident things will work out.

"True Blood" star Deborah Ann Woll is going from one super-natural series to another.
The Hollywood Reporter reports she's joining the cast of the Netflix super hero series "Daredevil."
She'll be the love interest of the blind crimefighter, played by Charlie Cox.
Her character, Karen Page, is a secretary who knows the Ddaredevil's secret identity.

Broadway legend Elaine Stritch has died.
A friend tells CNN she died at her home in Birmingham, Michigan at the age of 89.
She's known to TV audiences as Jack Donaghy's mother on "30 Rock."
Stritch had been on Broadway since the 50's, in shows like "Pal Joey," "Company" and "The Ladies Who Lunch."
The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in Elaine Stritch's memory Friday night at exactly 7:45pm for one minute.
