In the comedy, Iglesias plays Gabe, a good-natured public high school teacher who works at his alma mater. He takes on teaching gifted but misfit kids to not only save them from being “counseled out” by a bully bureaucrat Assistant Principal, but also to help them unlock their full potential.
Vargas will play Tony Medina, Gabe’s longtime best friend and fellow teacher at the high school. Geha is Abby, another teacher at the school who is the idealistic antidote to Tony. She is genuinely excited – almost annoyingly so – to be shaping the future through her teaching. Cicchino will portray Marisol Fuentes, a 16-year-old determined, yet overworked student.
