One of the stars of NBC’s “Community" will executive produce a comedy project for TV Land. EW.com’s Inside TV reports that Alison Brie has been tapped for the pilot “Teachers."
The project is about six elementary school teachers who deal with their own lives while also trying to help their students. It’s based on the Web series of the same name.
“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,” TV Land President Larry W. Jones said.
Brie will executive produce with Matt Miller of “Chuck” and the producers of the Web series.
