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).

I Can't Do It
28 September 2013 | by (Philly) – See all my reviews

Mr. Box Office is an American sitcom that debuted in first-run syndication in the United States on September 22, 2012. Created by Byron Allen and produced by Allen's production company Entertainment Studios.

With that said, this show is not funny, not original and not worth the 30 minutes of electricity it takes to sit and watch this train wreck. The more I watched it the more I realized this sitcom is a burial ground for actors from the 80's & 90's. There is no doubt in my mind that someone blew the dust off of the writers and gave them a second chance to jump start their career as well. I have to admit, I kept watching an episode to the end because I was amazed at how every scene was worst then the last. This is a perfect teaching tool for future writers, actors and producers on what not to do when creating a sitcom.
