“Bad Teacher” is coming to TV.
On Wednesday, CBS announced it had ordered the single-camera comedy, based on the Cameron Diaz-starring film, for the 2013-2014 television season.
Ari Graynor stars in the series as “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,” per CBS.
Ari previously played Caitlin, Meadow Soprano’s troubled college roommate in HBO’s “The Sopranos.” She also starred as Rachel in Fox’s “Fringe.”
Executive Producers for “Bad Teacher” are Hilary Winston, Lee Eisenberg, Gene Stupnitsky, Sam Hansen, Jimmy Miller and Michael Lasker.
No air date has been set for the series.
