Ian Roberts and Jay Martel, who have been showrunners on Comedy Central’s Key & Peele since the show began, and now they’re looking to do that same job on another comedy. Deadline reports that Roberts and Martel have been hired as showrunners on Teachers, a TV Land comedy pilot executive produced by Alison Brie. The pilot is based on the web series of the same name, following an eccentric group of elementary school teachers. The show, like the web series, stars the iO Chicago-based sketch/improv group The Katydids (made up of Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas).
