SEASON TWO OF CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED COMEDY "TEACHERS" RETURNS AND SMART, FEISTY LATE NIGHT SERIES "THROWING SHADE" PREMIERES TUESDAY, JANUARY 17TH

New York, NY - November 22, 2016 - Feeling salty about 2017? Come sit with the cool kids in the cafeteria, where we'll be throwing shade all winter long with two hilarious comedies, beginning Tuesday, January 17th. Season two of the Grade-A "Teachers," starring the improv group The Katydids, returns at 10pm ET/PT, followed by "Throwing Shade" at 10:30pm ET/PT - the clever, timely, and boundary-pushing new late night series based on the popular podcast and Funny or Die web series hosted by Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi.

"Teachers" revolves around a group of elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds of America's youth, but don't have their own lives together at all, and the second season will see the women facing elections, demotions and team-building exercises. "Teachers" is written by and stars The Katydids - Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O'Brien and Kathryn Renée Thomas - and in season two, great guest stars pop up, including Haley Joel Osment ("Alpha House," "Comedy Bang! Bang!") as Mrs. Adler's husband, Ryan Hansen ("Party Down") as Ms. Snap's rival in a school council race, Jessica St. Clair ("Playing House") as the school counselor, and more surprising appearances and cameos by famous faces in comedy, pop culture and music, including Lisa Loeb, Coolio and more. Along with The Katydids, Alison Brie ("Community") and showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel ("Key and Peele") executive produce the series. Matt Miller and Cap Gun Collective are also executive producers.

"Throwing Shade," based on the hit podcast and Funny Or Die web series, is hosted by Erin Gibson (Emmy(R) nominated for "Gay of Thrones," "Parks and Recreation") and Bryan Safi ("Modern Family," "Superstore"), who will bring their unique perspective to the hottest topics of today - from politics, feminism and gay rights to the latest celebrity nonsense - in front of a live studio audience. Gibson and Safi serve as executive producers, along with showrunner Charlie Siskel ("Tosh.0," "Review"). Joe Farrell, Andrew Steele and Anna Wenger are also executive producers for Funny or Die.
