TVLine Items: Head of the Class Trailer, Power Rangers to Netflix and More

HBO Max is at the Head of the Class with the first trailer for its upcoming reboot of the 1980s ABC sitcom.

The comedy revolves around a group of overachieving high school students who meet their greatest challenge — a teacher (played by One Day at a Time‘s Isabella Gomez) who wants them to focus less on grades and more on experiencing life. As previously announced, original series star Robin Givens will reprise her role as Darlene Merriman, who is now a single mother to one of the students.

Head of the Class (premiering Thursday, Nov. 4 with all 10 episodes) comes from writers/executive producers Amy Pocha and Seth Cohen (American Vandal) and EP Bill Lawrence (Ted Lasso).
