Two And A Half Men creator/producer Chuck Lorre is set to receive the 2014 Norman Lear Award in Television.

Bosses at the Producers Guild of America will present Lorre with the accolade during the 25th annual PGA Awards on 19 January (13).

Lorre, who is also the brains behind current hit shows The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly, adds, "Norman Lear is a legend in this business and one of comedy's true kings. I have to admit that I've been tongue-tied and starstruck just standing in the same room with him.

"Needless to say, being associated with his artistry, much less to be honoured in his name, is both humbling and inspiring - and more than a little embarrassing. I'm deeply grateful to the Producers Guild for acknowledging my work in this extraordinary fashion."

Previous recipients include Tom Hanks, Jerry Bruckheimer and Aaron Spelling.
