Based on the 2011 comedy film of the same name starring Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel, Bad Teacher follows Meredith Davis (Ari Graynor, American Dad!, Fringe), an always-inappropriate, fearless and remorseless gold digger who finds herself penniless after her wealthy husband gives her the wind. Dumped, divorced and poor as a church-mouse due to a bad prenuptial agreement, she manages to keep a cool head and conceive the perfect plan to find a new man with the precious help of her friend’ savvy and awkward stepdaughter, Lily (Sara Rodier, Happy Endings, Wendell and Vinnie). As a starter, using a phony resume, Meredith passes herself off as a teacher at Lily’s ritzy middle school.
A queen of hearts, Meredith manages to wrap everyone around her finger, including Irene (Sara Gilbert, Roseanne, The Big Bang Theory), a shy, indrawn teacher who is overly excited at the possibility of making a best friend, and Principal Carl Gaines (David Alan Grier, The X-Files, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), who swallows a gudgeon and is oblivious to her agenda. However, Ginny (Kristin Davis, Melrose Place, Sex and the City), the up-tight Faculty President, is immune to her charm. More than that, she suspects not everything is kosher with Meredith and sets out to expose her. Last, but not least, there is Joel (Ryan Hansen, Veronica Mars, 2 Broke Girls), Meredith’s handsome former high school classmate turned gym teacher, who knows her better than anyone, but is amused by her antics.
In view of these facts, all the goldilocks has to do is to keep an eye out for a rich single dad, marry him and return to a lavish lifestyle. In the meantime, she imparts the much-needed life lessons to Lily and her friends.
