“Bad Teacher” is turning into its own franchise. A sitcom based on the film has been picked up by CBS and will star Ari Graynor. It has already received a 13-episode mid-season order.
“’Bad Teacher’ was a hit not just in North America, but throughout the world. We’re excited that Jake will be returning to develop and helm the sequel. We love Justin’s take on the material — it hits all the notes that made the first film such a breakthrough hit and also takes the characters in a new direction that is fresh and fun,” said Hannah Minghella, president of production for Columbia Pictures.
