cast of Teachers on TVLAND

"Teachers" review by Eva Diaz  1/13/16
Airs Wednesdays 10:30/9:30pm

I saw the comercials for Teachers and thought I would watch it, although it didn't seem like it would be something I would like. Sadly, I was right; I don't like it at all. The show is based on a web series done by the Chicago comedy troop "The Katydids," with its members making up the main cast.  Let me be clear and underline this fact this is a very adult comedy.  Please do not watch it with your children.  This comedy is strictly for an audience that likes the type of comedy found in the movie "American Pie."  Executive-produced by Alison Bee, it is also a very dark comedy.   In the pilot episode, the teachers are told by the school principal that they must organize an anti-bullying campaign, and they end up turning the students into bullies. 

The cast of kids is large and very good.  The kids were funny, even though, at times, they used language that should not be used by children in elementary school . I am no prude, but I think TVLAND has gone too far in its efforts to be more edgy and to attract younger viewers. I give this show a 2 out of 5 stars only because, as I said, the children in the cast were very good. I think TVLAND is taking a big risk with this show, and  I wonder if it will pay off for them? Probably not.

MORE INFORMATION:

Teachers” revolves around six elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds and lives of America’s youth, even though they don’t really seem to have their own lives together at all.  From refusing to read fairytales because “sometimes Prince Charming wants to date other people” to hitting on the resident “hot dad,” these teachers are certainly changing the world, one student at a time. The series stars improv group The Katydids - Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas – who also wrote and starred in the web hit that the TV series is based on. In addition to writing for and starring in “Teachers,” they will also serve as executive producers alongside Alison Brie (“Community”) and showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel (“Key and Peele”).
 
Matt Miller and Cap Gun TV also serve as executive producers of “Teachers.”

WATCH THE NEW “TEACHERS” TRAILER NOW!

Teachers’ is hilariously bizarre, pushing the envelope and bringing the network into new comedic territory.”

Teachers” revolves around a group of elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds of America’s youth, but don’t have their own lives together at all. From Ms. Bennigan awkwardly flirting with the school’s resident “hot dad,” to Ms. Snap hooking up with the school janitor, and Ms. Watson making her class Facebook-stalk an ex-boyfriend, they’re changing the world – perhaps not for the better – one student at a time.  “Teachers” is written by and stars The Katydids, who wrote and acted in the popular web series of the same name and are each named a version of “Katie” – Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Kathryn Renée Thomas. Along with The Katydids, Alison Brie (“Community”) and showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel (“Key and Peele”) executive produce the series. Matt Miller and Cap Gun TV are also executive producers.
 
Brie will make a guest appearance in the pilot episode of “Teachers” as Lauren Lark, a district administrator facilitating an anti-bullying workshop at the school, who ironically has a less-than-friendly past with one of the teachers, Deb Adler (Thomas). Other guest stars making appearances this season include Rob Riggle (“21 Jump Street”), Lacey Chabert (“Mean Girls”), Jesse Bradford (“Bring It On”), Tim Bagley (“Knocked Up”), Sam Richardson (“Veep”), Trevor Larcom (“Fresh Off The Boat”) and more.
