Fall TV Scoop: CBS Orders Bad Teacher to Series

Bad Teacher, good news.

In a rare, post-upfront pickup, CBS has greenlit the single-camera comedy, which is based on the Cameron Diaz film of the same name.

Ari Graynor (Fringe) plays the title role of a sexy, foul-mouthed divorceé who becomes a teacher to find her next husband.
