ABC is remaking British comedy Bad Education with Jack Whitehall on board.
The network has handed out a pilot order to An American Education, a single-camera comedy based on the British series created by and starring Whitehall, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The ABC take centers on British transplant Alfie Wickers (Whitehall), an unorthodox teacher in the San Diego public school system. Alfie loves his students but his youthful, often naive enthusiasm and unconventional methods puts him at odds with the test-obsessed administrators. He juggles his time between mentoring his students, bucking the system and pursuing the attractive new chemistry teacher.
