CBS' planned five new comedies for the 2013-14 season just grew to six.
The network on Wednesday issued a late series pick-up for single-camera
comedy Bad Teacher, a week after it unveiled
its primetime schedule at its upfront presentation.
Based on the 2011 Cameron Diaz feature film, Bad Teacher stars Ari Graynor as an 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 broke.
Hilary Winston, Lee Eisenberg, Gene Stupnitsky, Sam Hansen,
Jimmy Miller and Michael Lasker are executive producers for Sony Pictures Television
in association with CBS Television Studios and Mosaic Media Group.
Bad Teacher joins CBS'
other freshman comedies We Are Men,
Chuck Lorre's Mom, The Millers starring Will Arnett, Robin Williams starrer The Crazy Ones and midseason's Friends With Better Lives.
