via press release:


 2013-2014 SEASON


CBS has ordered the single-camera comedy BAD TEACHER for the 2013-2014 season.

Hilary Winston, Lee Eisenberg, Gene Stupnitsky, Sam Hansen, Jimmy Miller and Michael Lasker are executive producers for Sony Pictures Television in association with CBS Television Studios and Mosaic Media Group.


  • Charmed

    Why wasnt this announced earlier?

  • Ronald

    they pick it up later rigth¿? cause i read they wont be doing it and now they changed their minds

  • Bill

    I guess held back for mid season if something fails?

  • The Original J

    I think this show needs more executive producers.

  • Oliver

    Yay. Love Hilary Winston’s work. She did great stuff on Community and Happy Endings.

  • Dan

    I think CBS needs more comedies for next season

  • Ty

    This is gonna work, I just feel it. Ari was HILARIOUS in The sitter.

  • tim_m

    If this is as bad as the movie its going to be disaster.

  • JoshuaCanada

    I thought the show “Trophy Wife” was what Bad Teacher was renmaed too. To me these seem really similar.

  • Colin

    Yes!! Finally!! Cannot wait to watch it. Going to be funny.

  • Ultima

    Why wasnt this announced earlier?

    Because they hadn’t picked it up yet…

  • AniMatsuri

    Why do I get the feeling this show will have next to none of the energy of the movie?

  • jake3988

    That’s now 3 midseason comedies for CBS (2 new, 1 returning)… CBS expecting all their new comedies to bomb? If they don’t… where are they going to go?

  • Michael

    Cameron Diaz was hilarious in the film. Hopefully, the show will be just as funny.

  • Ram510

    This show seems like a Bad Idea. The decision-making at CBS has gotten worse over the past two seasons someone over there should be fired

  • bjssp

    When’s the latest a comedy for the upcoming season has ever been picked up? I’m interested in seeing if Assistance, Brenda Forever, and the Craig Robinson show are picked up at NBC.

    “Based on the hit feature film, Bad Tacher.”

    Define ‘hit’. Box office hit I assume, because both people and critics hated it. If it’s anything like the movie, not funny, it will probably get the Partners treatment.

  • DenverDean

    Contract negotiation with Sony held it up. CBS Studios now is a co-producer. There wasn’t much doubt it would be picked up. All the pre-buzz has been that it’s been testing well. Companion to 2BG?

  • rob60990

    This will be DOA.

  • Jt

    My guess is networks won’t do as many full season pick ups not because there not doing well but have a ton of series with not alot of episodes.
