ABC gave a straight-to-series order for a new comedy series to premiere in the 2018-2019 broadcast season, which is a spinoff of the network’s “The Goldbergs.”
“The spinoff will be set in 1990-something and follow the hilarious teachers of William Penn Academy — led by Tim Meadows (Principal Glascott), Bryan Callen (Coach Mellor) and AJ Michalka (Lainey Lewis) — who, despite their eccentricities and crazy personal lives, are heroes to their students,” ABC said in announcing the series today.
The show’s title was not announced.
The story is by Marc Firek and Adam F. Goldberg, with the teleplay by Marc Firek. The series is from Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios. Adam F. Goldberg, Doug Robinson and Marc Firek are executive producers.
