ARI GRAYNOR, KRISTIN DAVIS, DAVID ALAN GRIER, SARA GILBERT, RYAN HANSEN AND SARA RODIER STAR IN THE NEW COMEDY SERIES "BAD TEACHER," BASED ON THE FEATURE FILM, PREMIERING THURSDAY, APRIL 24 ON CBS

"Pilot" - Former trophy wife Meredith Davis seeks a return to a life of leisure and luxury by posing as a teacher at an upscale elementary school to meet the students' rich, single fathers and land one to marry. However, her plan hits a major snag and she faces exposure when her unconventional - and mostly unsuitable - teaching methods raise the suspicions of a fellow faculty member, on the series premiere of BAD TEACHER, Thursday, April 24 (9:31-10:01 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

BAD TEACHER is a single camera comedy based on the hit feature film about an always inappropriate, fearless and unapologetic former trophy wife who masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man after her wealthy husband leaves her penniless. Dumped, divorced and broke due to a bad pre-nup, Meredith Davis is inspired by her friend's smart, awkward stepdaughter, Lily, to devise the perfect three-step plan: 1) Pose as a teacher at Lily's ritzy middle school; 2) Meet and marry a rich single dad; 3) Return to a lavish lifestyle. Using a phony resume, quick-thinking Meredith effortlessly charms Principal Carl Gaines, who is easily duped and oblivious to her agenda. The faculty includes Joel, her handsome former high school classmate turned gym teacher who sees right through her but is amused by her antics; Irene, a shy, introverted teacher who's overly excited at the possibility of making a best friend; and Ginny, the up-tight faculty president and busybody who resents Meredith and suspects something's fishy. Meredith may be the worst teacher ever, but she's the only one qualified to impart much-needed life lessons to Lily and her friends, while she keeps an eye out for husband #2.
