TV show description:
From creator Mike O’Brien, the AP Bio TV show is a workplace / high school comedy centering on Jack Griffin (Howerton). An award-winning philosophy scholar, Jack was denied tenure at Harvard because of an incident that ended with an older faculty member throttling him.
Now, he’s back home in Toledo, Ohio, teaching Advanced Placement biology, at Whitlock High School. After making a rather smashing entrance, Jack makes it clear to his students that he won’t be teaching them science, or much of anything, and that’s no teacher’s gimmick. He means it.
A self-involved curmudgeon, Jack is less than thrilled to be back and living in his late mother’s apartment. He can’t get his mind off of his rival, Miles (Bennett), who has a hot new book on the market and chairs the Philosophy department at Stanford.
One day, in the teachers’ lounge, Jack overhears his new colleagues Michelle (Villepique), Mary (Sohn), and Stef (Lewis) talking about how they use their students to get things done. From now on, there’s a new way to make the grade in his class — help Jack ruin Miles’ life.
Meanwhile, Principal Durbin (Oswalt) struggles to stay in charge, while still coming across as a laid-back guy. He can’t quite find his balance, and having Jack back isn’t making anything easier.
