Glenn Howerton, Patton Oswalt to Star in NBC's High School-Set Comedy Pilot

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Glenn Howerton and the ever-ubiquitous Patton Oswalt (Veep, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., etc.) are heading back to high school as the stars of NBC’s Untitled Mike O’Brien/Seth Meyers Project (fka AP Bio), TVLine has learned.

The potential series, penned by SNL alum O’Brien, centers on Howerton’s Jack, a hilariously cynical Ivy League professor who loses out on his dream job and goes to work as a high school biology teacher, where he imposes his unorthodox teaching style and uses the kids to plot out revenge on those who wronged him.

Oswalt will play Jack’s boss, the timid and nervous Principal Durbin, who desperately wants to be the “cool, chill” principal, but it’s just not in his nature.

O’Brien will serve as an EP alongside Meyers, Mike Shoemaker, Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer.

    I know sunnys been renewed for 2 more season but if this goes to series and the mick already being picked up for season 2, Charlie doing more movie series I’m a little worried.

    • Jared Munson says:

      I believe that is part of the reason why Sunny only does 10 episodes a year

    • J.B. says:

      He did an interview for The Wrap and he said he might leave the show completely or for a while. He also said if he did it would be a creative decision not one of availability as Kaitlin Olsen will be back for S13 and S14 despite The Mick getting renewed.

    Yes to more Glenn Howerton. I hope this does not affect It’s always Sunny.

  3. Joey Padron says:

    Good casting for the show. Love Glenn and Patton!

  4. Ray says:

    This has the potential to be great. Hope it gets picked up to series.

    Is it fair to assume that a pickup for this wouldn’t impact Patton’s continued presence-in-voiceover for The Goldbergs?

    • Its voiceover, so that really shouldn’t be an issue at all.

      My biggest concern is that ABC of all stations is going to be airing this. So, worst case senario, we have another horribly dated sitcom with a laughtrack, that tries to make up for its dated format by being “edgy” in a pg-13 way.
