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!)
