CBS has put in development a single-camera comedy from feature writer-director Marc Lawrence (Music and Lyrics) and The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King.

Written by Lawrence, the untitled project revolves around an extremely non-confrontational single mom who’s promoted to Dean of Students at the high school where she teaches and must contend with overly involved parents, demanding administrators and a challenging student body — which includes her two teenagers. Robert and Michelle King executive produce with Liz Glotzer via their King Size Productions. CBS Television Studios, where the Kings are based, is the studio.

Lawrence, who got his start in television on Family Ties before segueing to features, has film credits including Miss Congeniality (wrote), Music and Lyrics (wrote and directed), 2 Weeks Notice (wrote and directed) and The Rewrite (wrote and directed).

Robert and Michelle King are the executive producers and showrunners on The Good Fight, an upcoming spinoff from The Good Wife, which will run on CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network’s subscription video on-demand and live streaming service. The series will premiere in February. The Kings are repped by Paradigm.
