“Jane the Virgin” star Brett Dier has been cast in “The Goldbergs” spinoff, “Schooled,” ABC announced Wednesday.
Tim Meadows, Bryan Callen and AJ Michalka already star in the 1990s-set sitcom, which follows the teachers of William Penn Academy. Meadows plays Principal Glascott, Callen plays Coach Mellor and Michalka plays teacher Lainey Lewis. Despite their eccentricities and crazy personal lives, these school leaders are heroes to their students.
Dier will play CB, a young and energetic teacher inspired by “The Goldbergs” series creator Adam F. Goldberg’s real-life favorite teacher.
Marc Firek serves as writer on the series, based on a story by Firek and Goldberg. Goldberg, Firek and Doug Robinson serve as executive producers on the Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios series.
Dier is known for playing Michael Cordero Jr. in The CW series “Jane the Virgin,” and has also appeared in “Pretty Little Liars” and “Ravenswood.”
