The series will star “Fringe” actress Ari Graynor as Meredith Davis, a hot, confident, unapologetic trophy wife who takes a job at a middle school to meet a new man after her husband leaves her without a dime.

“Sex and the City” alum Kristin Davis will play Meredith’s nemesis Ginny, a math teacher, choir director and faculty president.

“Bad Teacher” is being produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with Mosaic Media Group. “My Name Is Earl” and “Community” veteran Hilary Winston is executive-producing. Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who were behind the film, are executive-producing as well, along with Jimmy Miller, Sam Hansen and Michael Lasker.

The series will premiere mid-season.
