NBC Orders Mike O’Brien’s ‘A.P. Bio’ Starring Glenn Howerton to Series
Mike O’Brien has a new comedy headed to NBC. According to Deadline, the network has given a series order to A.P. Bio, which has been in development at the network since last year. Written by O’Brien and produced by Seth Meyers, Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer, and Michael Shoemaker, the show stars It’s Always Sunny’s Glenn Howerton as “a philosophy scholar who loses out on his dream job and goes to work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher but he makes it clear he will not be teaching any biology. Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, he decides instead to use the kids to his own benefit.” Patton Oswalt, Lyric Lewis, Mary Sohn, Aparna Brielle, Jacob McCarthy, and Nick Peine also star in the series, and SNL’s Vanessa Bayer shows up in the pilot episode, which is directed by Oz Rodriguez.
