It make not have grossed quite as much as “Bridesmaids,” but “Bad Teacher” was one of the films to ride on the wave of success of recent R-rated comedies despite being little more than mediocre (see also “Horrible Bosses”) and still earn over $200m at the global box office. Those numbers aren’t to be sniffed at, and as well as boosting the careers of many of those involved with the film there have been efforts to exploit the film itself further. Unfortunately the film doesn’t exactly scream sequel, so rather than paying Cameron Diaz the big bucks to return, the property has been developed for television instead.

The series will be produced by the film’s original writer-producers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, »
