Scoop: BAD TEACHER on CBS - Saturday, July 19, 2014
BAD TEACHER is a single camera comedy based on the hit feature film about 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. Dumped, divorced and broke due to a bad pre-nup, Meredith Davis is inspired by her friend's smart, awkward stepdaughter, Lily, to devise the perfect three-step plan: 1) Pose as a teacher at Lily's ritzy middle school; 2) Meet and marry a rich single dad; 3) Return to a lavish lifestyle. Using a phony resume, quick-thinking Meredith effortlessly charms Principal Carl Gaines, who is easily duped and oblivious to her agenda. The faculty includes Joel, her handsome former high school classmate-turned-gym teacher, who sees right through her, but is amused by her antics; Irene, a shy, introverted teacher who's overly excited at the possibility of making a best friend; and Ginny, the up-tight faculty president and busybody who resents Meredith and suspects something's fishy. Meredith may be the worst teacher ever, but she's the only one qualified to impart much-needed life lessons to Lily and her friends, while she keeps an eye out for husband #2.
