"Bad Teacher," a movie starring Cameron Diaz as a foul-mouthed junior high school teacher, is moving to a new class.
The film is being adapted into a CBS comedy that will premiere in the 2013/14 season. Ari Graynor will take over the Diaz role as an always inappropriate, fearless and unapologetic former trophy wife who masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man after her wealthy husband leaves her penniless.
The executive producers include Hilary Winston, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.
Graynor previously appeared in "Fringe," and in the films "Celeste & Jesse Forever" and "The Sitter." She has also provided voices for "Family Guy" and "American Dad!"
