Because it's in desperate need of comedy shows, NBC has picked up Mike O'Brien and Seth Meyers' show about a scorned high school teacher. The show, which stars Glenn Howerton and Patton Oswalt, follows a philosophy scholar who doesn't get the job he wants and is relegated to teach pubescent ne'er do wells. At some point, he decides to use his advanced placement students to his benefit. Deadline reports that Lyric Lewis, Aparna Brielle, Jacob McCarthy, Mary Sohn, and Nick Peine co-star. Lorne Michaels is set to produce along with Meyers.
