Second Semester of "Teachers" Season Two Starts

Tuesday, November 7th at 10pm ET/PT

 

New York, NY – August 10, 2017 – School is back in session this fall! Don't be late for class on Tuesday, November 7th at 10pm ET/PT, when TV Land's critical darling "Teachers" returns for the second half of season two. The first 10 episodes of the Grade-A comedy's second season, which The Hollywood Reporter hailed as "stronger and funnier than ever," aired earlier this year and hit multiple series high ratings.

 

"After an amazing ratings performance last season, we are so excited to share the rest of the season with the fans," said Frank Tanki, General Manager of TV Land and CMT. "With season three already picked up, 'Teachers' is one of the core components of our brand, generating love from fans and critics alike."

 

"Teachers" revolves around a group of elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds of America's youth, but don't have their own lives together at all. The series is created by and stars the improv group The Katydids – Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O'Brien and Kathryn Renée Thomas. The second part of season two will see Ms. Bennigan (O'Brien) keep naively pursuing Hot Dad (guest star Ryan Caltagirone), Ms. Watson (Lambert) in an unexpected relationship, Mrs. Adler (Thomas) and Ms. Feldman (Freedman) dealing with a "serial pooper" around the school, Ms. Snap (Colloton) finding the school's forgotten library, Ms. Cannon (Barlow) discovering an artistic prodigy, and even an entire episode taking place in the 1940s. "Teachers" has already been renewed for a 20-episode third season to premiere in 2018.

 

Along with The Katydids, showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel ("Key and Peele") executive produce the series. Matt Miller, Cap Gun Collective and Alison Brie are also executive producers.

New York, NY – June 1, 2017 – TV Land's captivating dramedy "Younger" is back this summer, and this season's trailer makes one thing clear: the truth hurts. Last season, Liza (Sutton Foster) finally admitted her bombshell secret to Kelsey (Hilary Duff) – that she's not 26 and she's been lying all along – and viewers will get to see how it all unfolds on the Wednesday, June 28th premiere at 10pm. But Liza's relationship with Kelsey is not the only thing left in shambles. Her boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella) was left broken when he stumbled upon Liza and her boss, Charles (Peter Hermann), kissing right before he was about to propose. With her professional and personal lives on the line, Liza might only be left with the truth.

 

Season four of the Darren Star-created series will also see some amazing guest stars, including Emmy® and Tony® winner Kristin Chenoweth ("Wicked," "Hairspray Live") as Marylynne Keller, a DC "spin doctor" trying to sell a book to Empirical; heartthrob Charles Michael Davis ("The Originals") as Zane Anders, a competitor (and maybe more) to Kelsey; Aasif Mandvi ("The Daily Show") as Jay Mallick, a 40-something publisher that approaches Liza to run her own imprint; Jennifer Westfeldt ("Friends with Kids") as Pauline, a new author that Liza meets and in whom she sees herself; Meredith Hagner ("Search Party"), who plays Montana, a young artist and fan of Maggie's (Debi Mazar) work; and Phoebe Dynevor ("Snatch"), playing Clare, an Irish bartender that befriends Liza and the group. "Younger" will also see the return of some fan favorites this summer, including Michael Urie ("Ugly Betty") as literary agent Redmond; Mather Zickel ("Masters of Sex") as Diana's (Miriam Shor) live-in boyfriend Richard; Tessa Albertson ("The Good Wife") as Liza's daughter Caitlin; and Ben Rappaport ("Mr. Robot") as Max, Lauren's (Molly Bernard) doctor boyfriend.

 

"Younger," which has already been renewed for a fifth season, films at the legendary SilverCup Studios in New York and is created, executive produced and written by Darren Star, with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media executive producing for TV Land.

New York, NY – April 3, 2017 – Following its jaw-dropping season finale, TV Land's critically-acclaimed and fan favorite series "Younger," from "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star, began production today in NYC on its fourth season. When season four picks up, Liza's (Sutton Foster) love life is in disarray as she reels from her breakup with boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella), who was going to propose…until he discovered her kissing her boss, Charles (Peter Hermann). In the season three finale, Liza came to realize the damage her secret has caused and finally unveiled the truth to Kelsey (Hilary Duff). Now Liza will be forced to deal with the fallout of her deceit and learn that the truth hurts.

 

"Younger," set to premiere season four on Wednesday, June 28th at 10pm ET/PT, stars two-time Tony® winner Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann and Molly Bernard. The series, touted "more relevant than ever" by IndieWire and "one of the juiciest comfort-watches" by BuzzFeed, follows Liza, a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Last season, as Liza continued her lie, her two lives became irreversibly intertwined – with her longtime best friend, Maggie (Mazar), new friend and partner at Empirical, Kelsey, prickly boss Diana (Shor), and everyone in between, becoming part of the same world.

 

"Younger," which films at the legendary Silvercup Studios in New York, is created, executive produced and written by Darren Star, with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media executive producing for TV Land. Dottie Zicklin and Eric Zicklin also serve as executive producers and writers on the series.

New York, NY – February 21, 2017 – Keith Cox has been elevated to the expanded role of President, Development and Production for Paramount Network and TV Land, it was announced today by Kevin Kay, President of TV Land, CMT and Spike TV (soon to be Paramount Network). In this new position, Cox will oversee the strategic development and production of all series for both TV Land and the newly-announced Paramount Network – slated for early 2018 – which will feature distinctive, high-quality scripted and non-scripted original programming. 

 

"Keith has done an incredible job in building TV Land's slate of strong original scripted series over the last 10 years and reigniting the brand, and I'm thrilled to work with him as he continues to bring his strong creativity and unparalleled talent relationships to the Paramount Network," said Kay. 

 

Cox added, "I am so excited to have the privilege to help build a new premium channel from the ground up with The Paramount Network. It is an extraordinary opportunity to set a new bar for high-quality, character-driven content that resonates with audiences around the world."

 

As one of TV Land's executive producers, Cox developed, produced and launched all of the channel's current original scripted programming. He ushered in new eras at the network, including the first foray into scripted original series with the smash hit "Hot in Cleveland," which ran for six seasons and is now syndicated by CBS Television Distribution.

 

He then helped shape TV Land's new 2015 slate of captivating, unique original series aimed at audiences in their 30s and 40s beginning with Darren Star's "Younger," now entering its fourth season after garnering critical acclaim and massive buzz over the last two years. And the network's hit comedy "Teachers," now in its second season, continues to score series highs.

 

Upcoming projects that Cox has developed include: "Nobodies," executive produced by powerhouse comedy team Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, which has already been picked up for a second season prior to its March 2017 series premiere; "American Woman," a 1970s period dramedy executive produced by Emmy® winners John Wells ("Shameless," "The West Wing") and John Riggi ("30 Rock"); and the one hour pitch black anthology "Heathers," based on the cult classic film. 

 

Prior to joining TV Land, Cox held the post of Executive Vice President, Comedy and Alternative Development at the WB Television Network, where he oversaw all of the network's half-hour and reality development of such hits as Ashton Kutcher's "Beauty and the Geek" and 51 Minds' "Surreal Life." He was also instrumental in the development of such critical successes as "Starlet" and "Pop Stars 2." Cox joined the WB in 2001 as Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming at the WB.

 

Earlier, he worked at Greenblatt/Janollari as Vice President of Comedy and Drama Development, and he was part of the team that developed "Six Feet Under," "The Hughleys," and the online cult favorite, "Heat Vision and Jack" directed by Ben Stiller and starring Jack Black and Christine Taylor. Cox began his career as Director of Programming during the early days of FX before joining Warner Brothers Television, where he developed several shows for NBC's powerhouse Thursday night line-up.

Diaz will make his debut in the first episode of the new season as Hector, a friend from Manolo's (Anthony "Citric" Campos) past, who becomes like a son to George and a little brother to Manolo and Maronzio (Maronzio Vance).

This season will also see George exchange one-off dates for a steadier romantic relationship, and Manolo will go back to school to earn his degree.

Johnson, CaseyTVL Release Content Page layout “HEATHERS” ANTHOLOGY ORDERED TO SERIES AT TV LAND

FIRST EVER HOUR-LONG SERIES FOR NETWORK WILL DEBUT FALL 2017


Pasadena, CA – January 13, 2017 – TV Land has picked up its first ever hour-long series with "Heathers," it was announced today at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour by Keith Cox, President of Development and Production for TV Land. The first season is a 10-episode order and is set to premiere in Fall 2017. Based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name, "Heathers" is a pitch-black comedy anthology set in the present day, as our heroine Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox, "Under the Dome") deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers. Also starring are James Scully as JD, Melanie Field ("Wicked" National Tour) as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell ("Funny or Die") as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara. It was also revealed in November that original "Heathers" cast member Shannen Doherty will guest star as a pivotal, unnamed character in the TV Land series.

 

"Our take on 'Heathers' is a cinematic, surprising and twisted comedy that gives a wonderful nod to the film while also creating something entirely its own,"  said Cox. "We're really passionate about this show and the satirical story-telling its provocative characters allow."

 

Jason Micallef ("Butter"), who wrote the pilot script, will serve as executive producer and showrunner, and Leslye Headland ("Sleeping with Other People," "Bachelorette") directed and was an executive producer on the pilot. Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi executive produce for Lakeshore Entertainment.  Brad Gardner will executive produce for TV Land.

THE SERIES FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS JOHN WELLS AND JOHN RIGGI, AND WARNER HORIZON TELEVISION WILL DEBUT IN 2017


New York, NY – November 7, 2016 – TV Land announced today the series pick-up of 1970s period dramedy "American Woman," starring Alicia Silverstone ("Clueless," "Suburgatory"), Mena Suvari ("American Beauty," "Chicago Fire") and Jennifer Bartels ("Broken").  Inspired by the real-life upbringing of co-executive producer Kyle Richards ("The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"), "American Woman" is written and executive produced by Emmy® winner John Riggi ("30 Rock," "The Comeback"), and is executive produced by Emmy® winner John Wells ("Shameless," "ER," "The West Wing"). The 12-episode series will be produced by John Wells Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for TV Land. Alex Hardcastle ("You're the Worst") directed and served as executive producer on the pilot.

 

Set amid the sexual revolution and the rise of second-wave feminism, "American Woman" follows Bonnie (Silverstone), an unconventional mother struggling to raise her two daughters (Makenna James and Lia Ryan McHugh) after leaving her husband. With the help of her two best friends, Kathleen (Suvari) and Diana (Bartels), these three women will each discover their own brand of independence in a world reluctant to give it.

 

"We feel very lucky to be working with John Riggi and John Wells on this fantastic series that is not only beautifully written and directed, but has a stellar cast that portrays the themes of the '70s in a way that is still relevant today," said Keith Cox, President of Development and Original Programming for TV Land.

New York, NY – Sept. 14, 2016 – Keith Cox has been promoted to President, Development and Production for TV Land, it was announced today by Cyma Zarghami, President of Viacom’s Kids and Family Group, which includes TV Land, CMT and Nickelodeon. Cox, who was most recently Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for the network, will continue to be based in Los Angeles and report to Zarghami.

 

“Keith has been instrumental in shaping TV Land's original series over the last 10 years, first by bringing ‘Hot in Cleveland’ to the network in 2010, and by continuing to attract top-tier creative and talent from across the industry,” said Zarghami. “He has helped put the network on the map as a premier destination for quality original series through his strategic leadership of content development and his keen eye for creators and stories with a distinct point of view. Led by shows like ‘Younger’ and ‘Teachers,’ it’s exciting to see TV Land’s content pipeline connect to new and entirely different audiences.”

 

The marquee series in TV Land’s reinvention is “Younger,” helmed by prolific and renowned television creator Darren Star, and starring Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff and Debi Mazar. Going into its third season this fall and renewed for a fourth, “Younger” has been hugely successful, and Cox announced earlier this year that he closed a deal with Star to remain on the comedy and develop another series for the network.

 

With top talent in front of and behind the camera, TV Land’s recently announced pick-ups include “Nobodies,” executive produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, and the Funny or Die-produced “Throwing Shade,” based on the hit podcast.  TV Land is also shooting pilots for an adaptation of “The First Wives Club,” starring Alyson Hannigan, Megan Hilty and Vanessa Lachey, and written and produced by “Sex and the City’s” Jenny Bicks and “New Girl’s” Rebecca Addelman, and “American Woman,” a story inspired by the childhood of Kyle Richards – produced by John Wells, written by John Riggi and starring Alicia Silverstone and Mena Suvari. Additionally, the network has announced a pilot based on the cult classic film “Heathers,” written by Jason Micallef (“Butter”), directed by Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”) and executive produced by Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi for Lakeshore Entertainment. 

 

As one of TV Land’s executive producers, Cox developed, produced and launched all of the channel’s current original scripted programming. The first, “Hot in Cleveland,” ran for six seasons and is now syndicated by CBS Television Distribution.

 

Prior to joining TV Land, Cox held the post of Executive Vice President, Comedy and Alternative Development at the WB Television Network, where he oversaw all of the network’s half-hour and reality development of such hits as Ashton Kutcher’s “Beauty and the Geek” and 51 Minds’ “Surreal Life.” He was also instrumental in the development of such critical successes as “Starlet” and “Pop Stars 2.” Cox joined the WB in 2001 as Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming at the WB.

 

Earlier, he worked at Greenblatt/Janollari as Vice President of Comedy and Drama Development, and he was part of the team that developed “Six Feet Under,” “The Hughleys,” and the online cult favorite, “Heat Vision and Jack” directed by Ben Stiller and starring Jack Black and Christine Taylor. Cox began his career as Director of Programming during the early days of FX before joining Warner Brothers Television, where he developed several shows for NBC’s powerhouse Thursday night line-up.
