CBS Picks Up Ari Graynor’s Bad Teacher to Series
Ari Graynor
Ari Graynor's new series 'Bad Teacher' will hit CBS airwaves this fall.

CBS has given the greenlight to The Performers alum Ari Graynor’s star vehicle comedy series Bad Teacher, reports TVLine.

The late-in-the-game pick-up is a rarity, considering that Bad Teacher was left off of CBS’s upfront slate last week. Still, it’s great news for Graynor, who will play a foul-mouthed teacher looking for her next husband at school.

The series is loosely based on the 2011 Cameron Diaz film of the same name and will co-star fellow Broadway vets David Alan Grier and Kristin Davis as well as Ryan Hansen and Sara Gilbert.

Graynor turned in a memorable stage performance in last fall's short-lived comedy The Performers; her past Broadway credits include Brooklyn BoyThe Little Dog Laughed and Relatively Speaking. On screen, Graynor's star turns include For A Good Time, Call...Nick & Nora's Infinite PlaylistWhat's Your Number?The Guilt TripCeleste and Jesse Forever10 Years and The Sitter
