CBS ordered two additional pilots late Wednesday, including a small screen adaptation of Bad Teacher.

Based on the 2011 Cameron Diaz flick, the single camera project centers on a sexy, foul-mouthed divorcee who becomes a teacher to find her next husband.

Community and Happy Endings scribe Hilary Winston wrote the script and will serve as an EP alongside the team behind the film version, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupinsky.

CBS also ordered The Advocates, a drama from Mentalist creator Bruno Heller about a female lawyer and a male ex-con who team up as “victim advocates.”
