Ari Graynor Gets the Cameron Diaz Role in Bad Teacher Pilot

CBS's single-camera adaptation of 2011's Bad Teacher has found its Cameron Diaz in Ari Graynor (For a Good Time Call, What's Your Number). Hilary Winston of Community and Happy Endings is writing and producing the pilot about "hot, confident, unapologetic former trophy wife Meredith Davis, who becomes a teacher to find a new man after her husband leaves her without a dime." Graynor will also produce; she joins the recently cast David Alan Grier.
