CBS Orders ‘Bad Teacher’ to Pilot


CBS has commissioned a sitcom pilot based on the 2011 movie Bad Teacher, Entertainment Weekly reports. Like to film, the show will focus on a misbehavin’ junior high teacher who is looking for her next husband. The Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who penned the script to Bad Teacher, will be writing the show. It’s a busy pilot season for Eisenberg and Stupnitsky, who are also producing Trophy Wife, starring Malin Akerman as a cleaned-up party girl who falls in love with a guy (Bradley Whitford) with kids and two ex-wives, and adapting the UK series Pulling, both at ABC. There’s no word yet on who will star in the Bad Teacher pilot, but it’ll be an in-demand part for actresses, especially for actresses who love swearing at tweens.
