Good girl Charlotte is moving from prowling the streets of New York City to the halls of middle school.

Kristin Davis

"Sex and the City" star Kristin Davis is the latest addition to the cast of CBS' comedy pilot "Bad Teacher."

The series is an adaptation of the 2011 film which starred Cameron Diaz in the titular role, a money hungry teacher eager to find a wealthy husband so that she can ditch her thankless job and the annoying kids that go with it.
Davis will take on the role of Ginny (Amy Squirrel in the film version), the eager to please fellow teacher, faculty president, and choir director at the school. Ginny sees through and attempts to expose the main character's many deceits and failures on the job. The role was played in the film version by Lucy Punch, who was arguably the sole comedic highlight of an otherwise mundane comedy effort.

The actress joins the previously cast Ari Graynor ("Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist") who will tackle the titular role. Rounding out the cast are Ryan Hansen ("Party Down"), David Alan Grier ("In Living Color") and Sara Gilbert ("Roseanne").

The series adaptation is headed up by producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who were the writers on the film, while penning the script will be "My Name Is Earl" and "Community" writer Hilary Winston.
