Disney’s FX has announced that it has ordered a brand new comedy series called “English Teacher”, which is going to be created by and starring Brian Jordan Alvarez, who has previously starred in “Will and Grace” and “Jane the Virgin”.
“English Teacher” follows a high school teacher in Austin who’s trying to balance the competing demands of the students and their parents in a world where the rules seem to change every day.
Nick Grad, President, FX Entertainment, said in a statement regarding the new series:
“Brian is an incredibly talented writer, actor and creator who has fully delivered on his vision for English Teacher. Together with a creative team featuring Paul Simms and Jonathan Krisel, along with this brilliant cast, they have created a hilarious, original comedy that is fresh, engaging and fun.”
Also starring in the series will be Stephanie Koenig (Lessons in Chemistry, The Offer), Enrico Colantoni (Just Shoot Me, Veronica Mars, Station Eleven) and Sean Patton (Maron, Yes, and… ).
“English Teacher” is executive produced by Alvarez (The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo, Will & Grace), Paul Simms (What We Do in the Shadows, Atlanta, Girls, Flight of the Conchords), Jonathan Krisel (Baskets, Portlandia) and Dave King (Parks and Recreation, The Good Place). FX Productions will produce “English Teacher”.
As with other FX series, we should expect to see this series released in the United States on Hulu and Hulu on Disney+. And internationally, expect to see this series released as a Star Original on Disney+ around the world.
