truTV Orders Its First Scripted Comedy Pilot ‘Those Who Can’t’

thosewhocantAfter the success of its first sketch show Friends of the People, TruTV is adding its first scripted comedy pilot. Deadline reports that the network has ordered a pilot called Those Who Can’t created by and starring Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl, and Ben Roy of the Denver comedy trio The Grawlix. The series will be set in Denver and follow Cayton-Holland, Orvedahl, and Roy as “three dysfunctional high school teachers who are as screwed-up as the kids they teach. When an entitled bully decides to make their lives miserable, they go to ridiculous lengths to exact revenge.” Former SNL writer and Broad City co-executive producer Eric Slovin will serve as showrunner. The series was originally a pilot at Amazon but did not get a full series order.
