Anna Faris and Allison Janney are reportedly seeking "significant" raises as CBS negotiates Mom's renewal for Season 7
Faris and Janney's contracts expire at the end of this season. Since Mom finished as the No. 3 comedy on broadcast TV -- after The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon -- CBS is interested in renewing their deals. As Deadline's Nellie Andreeva reports, "in preparation for a possible renewal, I hear producing studio Warner Bros. TV over the past month or so reached out to Faris and Janney about new deals. I hear the two actresses went in together and there has been some initial back and forth but the two sides are still very far apart on the money as Faris and Janney are seeking significant salary increases. All parties involved declined comment. Faris and Janney are believed to be currently making under $200,000 an episode each. That is well below the $1 million an episode the five main stars of Big Bang were getting by Season 8." Andreeva adds: "The Mom negotiation may get extra scrutiny in light of the ongoing drive for gender equality as it is a rare comedy with female leads."
