Disney’s ABC has ordered a full series of “Abbott Elementary“, which is a workplace comedy, about a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal — are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life. Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.
The series stars Quinta Brunson as Janine Teagues, Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, Lisa Anne Walter as Melissa Schemmenti and Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard.
Quinta Brunson serves as writer and executive producer alongside Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker of Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions.
The series is going to be produced by Warner Bros. Television and 20th Television. So it’s unclear if this series will be released internationally as a Star Original. Warner Bros and Disney have previously worked together on the Disney+ Original series “The Right Stuff”.
