Premiering Tuesday, Nov. 10, A Teacher follows Claire Wilson (played by House of Cards‘ Mara), a young teacher at a suburban Texas high school and her student, Eric Walker (Melissa & Joey‘s Nick Robinson), as they navigate the complexities and consequences of a predatory relationship.
A Teacher was created by Hannah Fidell, who also serves as writer, director and executive producer. Mara is also among the EPs on the 10-episode, half-hour series.
Given A Teacher‘s very premise (and the fact that such a student/teacher relationship is a second-degree felony offense in Texas, where it is set, regardless of the former’s age), FX Networks has partnered with RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) on the Public Service Announcement below, featuring Mara.
