Bad Teacher to CBS: New Comedy Based on 2011 Film

By: Josh Wolford - May 23, 2013

CBS has just added another comedy to its 2013-2014 season – Bad Teacher.

Based on the 2011 film of the same name, Bad Teacher is a single-camera comedy that follows the exploits of a former trophy wife posing as a teacher. The show will star Ari Graynor, who you may know from Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Youth in Revolt, and the TV hit Fringe.

The show will also feature Roseanne and The Talk‘s Sara Gilbert, Sex and the City‘s Kristin Davis, and David Alan Grier.

Here’s CBS’ description of the show:

Based on the hit feature film, BAD TEACHER stars Ari Graynor as an always inappropriate, fearless and unapologetic former trophy wife who masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man after her wealthy husband leaves her penniless.

CBS recently unveiled their Fall lineup, including a handful of new comedies and dramas. Notable additions include the new show The Crazy Ones, starring Robin Williams and Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Sarah Michelle Gellar.
