NBC unveiled a number of programming moves Tuesday, including giving a renewal to the comedy series “AP Bio.” Variety reports that the show will return for a second season on the network.
“The comedy series follows a philosophy scholar who loses out on his dream job and goes to work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher, but he makes it clear he will not be teaching any biology,” Variety notes. “Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, he decides instead to use the kids to his own benefit.”
Produced by Universal Television, Broadway Video and Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions, “A.P. Bio” is written and executive produced by Mike O’Brien, with Seth Meyers, Mike Shoemaker, Andrew Singer and Lorne Michaels on board as executive producers. Glenn Howerton and Patton Oswalt star.
“In addition, NBC has given out series order to the multicamera comedy ‘Abby’s’ and the single-camera comedy ‘I Feel Bad,'” Variety adds.
