The stars of the hit CBS comedy series “The Big Bang Theory” are reportedly demanding a $750,000 pay raise — per episode.

Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg are locked in contract negotiations with Warner Bros. TV going into season 8, which is slated for production beginning July 30, Deadline Hollywood reports.

The stars were making about $350,000 per episode in season 7 under their former contracts, but are now looking something in the neighborhood of $1 million per episode, according to Deadline.

Some estimate “The Big Bang Theory” could generate up to $3 billion for Warner Bros. TV.
