Despite announcing their full 2013-2014 lineup last week, CBS has issued a late series order for their Bad Teacher pilot. It isn't known whether the network plans on launching this comedy series in the fall or, most likely, midseason.
Ari Graynor stars as Meredith Davis, a foul-mouthed divorcee who becomes a teacher in a quest to find her next husband. The plot diverts slightly from the 2011 movie Bad Teacher, where Cameron Diaz played a teacher who was ready to leave her job and marry a rich man, until he dumps her.
Hilary Winston (Community, Happy Endings) wrote the pilot script and will executive produce alongside Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, who wrote the Bad Teacher movie screenplay. Sam Hansen, Jimmy Miller, and Sara Rodier also serve as executive producers.
