Ari Graynor (“For A Good Time Call”) will play the Cameron Diaz role in a small-screen version of “Bad Teacher”.
Deadline, who has the news on Graynor being cast, says the sitcom “centers on hot, confident, unapologetic former trophy wife Meredith Davis (Graynor) who becomes a teacher to find a new man after her husband leaves her without a dime. A smart and savvy survivor, she sets her sights on a teaching career when she hears there are a lot of rich single dads at a local middle school. Meredith Davis knows what she wants and more importantly, how to get it.”
The CBS series is executive produced by the film’s writers-producers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenber.
