Big Bang Theory exec producer Chuck Lorre has revealed a major career change for Penny (Kaley Cuoco) on the CBS comedy's upcoming eight season.
Penny has an interesting arc this year where she puts acting down. She gets a shot to be a pharmaceutical rep at Bernadette's [Melissa Rauch] company.
Lorre adds that Penny and Leonard's relationship will be affected by her new job:
She's going to start making some money, which will unbalance their relationship as the power shifts. She's going to find some confidence and self-esteem, which acting does not provide in great heaping doses.
