Storyline

The series centers on movie star Marcus Jackson (Bill Bellamy), who ends up getting sentenced to community service after engaging in an altercation with a paparazzo, forcing Marcus to put his film career on hold. Due to the fact that he has a teacher's license (since he originally aspired to work as a teacher), the judge presiding in his case orders him to serve a six-month stint as a teacher for underprivileged high school kids in Los Angeles' South Central neighborhood. In doing so, Marcus has to deal with his agent Bobby Gold (Jon Lovitz), who constantly attempts to get his client back into film, when he discovers that Marcus has decided that he wants to remain working at the school and help improve his students. Marcus also deals with the mishaps of his best friends and roommates Tony (Tony T. Roberts) and Jamal (Alex Thomas).

Dreadful
4 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was up late last night and caught the last 15 minutes of an episode of this show. I'm still stupefied about how incalculably BAD it was. I'm actually ashamed to be a member of the same species as these people.

If I were in an audience (for another, much better show) that had my laugh recorded and they used that laugh track here, I would sue them for slander and character assassination. Considering how often they used canned laughs here, many people now have that right.

This could never be an hour show,each scene was worse than the last and the show would collapse into a black hole of stupidity that would swallow it up if it went that long. Honestly, the writing on this show makes "Small Wonder" (remember that dreck?) seem like Masterpiece Theater. Gads, this is terrible. Avoid at all costs!
