Alison Brie and Cast of Teachers Preview 'Shocking' TV Land Comedy

When Alison Brie first watched the web series Teachers, her immediate thought was, “The world needs more.” And now, thanks to the Community actress, “They’re going to have it.”

The project has since been adapted into a 30-minute comedy, airing on TV Land this January. Starring the all-female improv ensemble The Katydids (who executive-produce alongside Brie), the series follows a group of six elementary school teachers, none of whom actually have it together in their personal lives.

As star Katy Colloton told Michael Ausiello in our Comic-Con interview suite, “You don’t know what your teacher is like outside of school, and that’s what we’re trying to explore.”

Other topics covered in TVLine’s Q&A with the cast: why TV Land was a perfect fit for Teachers, and which of the six main characters is “a little bit Ms. Frizzle, a little bit Kramer.” (You might be surprised!)
