CBS has added a sixth new comedy to its 2013-14 season slate, giving a series order to Sony Pictures TV’s adaptation of the 2011 Cameron Diaz starrer “Bad Teacher.”
The single-camera comedy stars Ari Graynor as an unapologetic former trophy wife who masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man after she’s dumped by her rich husband. Sara Gilbert, David Alan Grier and Kristin Davis co-star.
Hilary Winston penned the pilot and exec produces with comedy vets Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, Sam Hansen, Jimmy Miller and Michael Lasker. Don Scardino directed the pilot.
CBS TV Studios has come on board as a co-producer with Sony on the series. The Eye has a bumper crop of comedies for the coming season as it expands its Thursday lineup to four laffers and restocks on Mondays.
