This has cancellation written all over it. There are producers out there that think the film ‘Bad Teacher’ starring Cameron Diaz should be adapted for the small screen. According to Ace Showbiz, the CBS Network is interested, ordering a script from writer Hilary Winston of both ‘Community’ and ‘Happy Ending’ fame. The ‘Bad Teacher’ TV series will be executive produced by Winston, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg who were the writers behind the 2011 movie’s screenplay.
For those that don’t remember, ‘Bad Teacher’ the movie was directed by Jake Kasden and starred Justin Timberlake, Jason Segel and Lucy Punch. In the film Diaz played a pot smoking teacher named Elizabeth Halsey with a sailor’s mouth who finds herself single and alone after being dumped by her fiance. On the prowl for a new man that will take care of her and a boob job, Diaz’s character makes it her mission to land a fellow wealthy teacher played by Timberlake. Released on last year in June, the movie grossed $216 million on a global scale per Box Office Mojo. Tell us what you think. Would you watch a ‘Bad Teacher’ TV series?
