'Community' star Alison Brie to produce TV Land comedy pilot 'Teachers'
Alison Brie may be taking the whole “stay in school” thing a little too seriously.
The Community star is attached to executive produce Teachers, a comedy pilot based on the popular Web series of the same name, for TV Land, EW has confirmed.
“From the second this project came across my desk, I’ve been in love with it,” said TV Land president Larry W. Jones. “The tone of the show is unlike anything we’ve had on TV Land. I’m really excited about the idea of building this unexplored world, where teachers are the eccentric characters you always hoped they weren’t.”
According to the network, Teachers follows six elementary school teachers who try to get their own lives in order while shaping (or destroying) the minds of the American youth. Stalking your ex online is bad enough — don’t get the children involved! Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien, and Katie Thomas (a.k.a the Katydids — yes all of their names are some form of Kate) will reprise their roles from the Web series for TV. Brie will executive produce alongside Matt Miller (Chuck) and the producers of the Web series Cap Gun TV.
