With so many stellar comedy series on television right now, it is hard to stand out in the crowd. So CBS was smart to cast Ari Graynor and Ryan Hansen as its comedic leads for its new series BAD TEACHER.

Taken from the concept of the movie that starred Cameron Diaz, BAD TEACHER looks at the life of a rich socialite, Meredith Davis (Ari Graynor), as it disintegrates around her upon her divorce. Destitute and desperate for money, as well as the opportunity to meet eligible young, wealthy men, Meredith talks her way into a teaching job.

Confident that her luck must be changing, Meredith just knows that the right man with the right bank account will fall right into her lap if she just makes herself available and puts herself in his path. The “right place, right time” strategy is fairly fool-proof. Yet, interestingly, Meredith discovers that there is more to life than marrying a rich man.

Inspired by the kids around her, she finds herself a champion of the school under-dogs. Unable to just stand by and abide the bullying prevalent in the school, Meredith is soon mentoring in the art of “fake it ‘til you make it” and teaching how confidence is all you need to get exactly what you want out of life.

It is a plucky, poignant tale of a young woman inspired to be more than she ever dreamed she could be; and how that courage and can-do attitude inspires the kids to do the same. [Read more…]
