CBS to develop 'Bad Teacher' comedy

Posted on

Bad Teacher

Bruce Almighty

Remember the 2011 movie Bad Teacher?  It could become a comedy on CBS next fall.

CBS has ordered a pilot from Sony that, like the film that starred Cameron Diaz, will focus on a sexy, foul-mouthed divorcee who becomes a teacher to find her next husband. The single-camera comedy will be written by Hilary Winston and exec produced by Gene Stupinsky and Les Eisenberg, who penned the film.

CBS also ordered a drama pilot called The Advocates from Rome creator Bruno Heller. The project from Warner Bros. TV will follow a female lawyer and a male ex-con who team up as victim advocates, going to the very edge of the law to right wrongs and fight for the underdog.
