CBS adapting Bad Teacher

Bad Teacher

CBS seems to think that having a Bad Teacher is a good idea.

The network has given script orders to a half-hour comedy based on the 2011 film, which stared Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz. And the dude from N*Sync.

The film, produced by Columbia Pictures, grossed more than $216 million worldwide. It starred Diaz as the bad teacher, who took a break from gold digging to learn a little something about life - and love - due to the gym teacher (Segal). Timberlake played a wealthy colleague who Diaz's character tried, unsuccessfully, to woo.

The project is being produced by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, who wrote the film. Hilary Winston is on board to write and executive produce. Winston also writes for Happy Endings and Community. She also had a pilot named Happy Valley, starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Mena Suvari, which NBC passed up on.

She has written for My Name is Earl and Blue Collar TV as well. She is developing her book, My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me, with Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels for Paramount.

Stupnitsky and Eisenberg, both wrote and executive produced on NBC's The Office, and also penned the upcoming (HUGE RED FLAG ALERT) Ghostbusters III and Year One. 

Year One was terrible and Ghostbusters III sounds like a train wreck. I will be passing on this show.

Not me, I'll give that pilot a chance; and, looking forward to seeing Cameron Diaz on TV - what she's not in? Well, still. *** p.s. Ghostbusters III? That does not inspire confidence (but maybe it's possible that it won't totally suck).
