Class is back in session for the 80’s comedy series reboot Head of the Class,
The family comedy includes Robin Givens as she reprises the role she played on the original 1980s sitcom 35 years ago, Darlene Merriman.
Now known as Darlene Hayward, Givens’ character is a single parent who is hyper focused on setting her son up for success. Darlene and a new generation of overachieving high school students meet their greatest challenge — a teacher, Alicia Adams played by Isabella Gomez (One Day at a Time), who is keen to share that life isn’t always just about getting the best grades, it’s about experiences too.
The ten-episode series stars Isabella Gomez, Jorge Diaz, Jolie Hoang Rappaport, Gavin Lewis, Dior Goodjohn, Brandon Severs, Adrian Matthew Escalona, and Katie Beth Hall, with Givens guest-starring alongside Christa Miller.
Bill Lawrence (Ted Lasso, Scrubs) serves as executive producer of Head of the Class alongside Amy Pocha (Paradise PD, American Vandal) & Seth Cohen (Paradise PD, American Vandal), Jeff Ingold (Ted Lasso) for Doozer, Phill Lewis (One Day at a Time, Mike & Molly) and Bill Callahan (Scrubs, Spin City). Doozer’s Liza Katzer (Ted Lasso) is co-executive producer. Pocha & Cohen wrote the pilot episode, which was directed by Phill Lewis. From Doozer Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, the series is based on the original 1980s comedy created by Rich Eustis & Michael Elias.
