If NBC’s upcoming Mr. Robinson is half as fun as its star seems to be having in this exclusive sneak peek, we’re all in for a good time.
The comedy, led by Office alum Craig Robinson, follows his character as he tries to make a living as a substitute school teacher by day/professional musician by night. (The concept is loosely based on Robinson’s own life.)
In the video below, Robinson introduces his castmates, including Frasier‘s Peri Gilpin as the school’s principal and Deception‘s Meagan Good as one of the (multiple) objects of Robinson’s character’s affection.
Mr. Robinson premieres Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 9/8c. Press PLAY on the clip to hear Robinson compare watching one of his co-stars’ performances to “eating a chocolate macadamia nut” and to hear his character’s band, The Nasty Delicious, in action.
