TruTV's first foray into full-length scripted comedy is this series created by and starring Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy, members of the Denver-based comedy troupe The Grawlix. Playing high school teachers Loren Payton, Andy Fairbell and Billy Shoemaker, respectively, the three educators are about as dysfunctional as the students at Smoot High. Spanish teacher Loren is a self-proclaimed bon vivant; Andy teaches gym, health, and coaches girls volleyball, but his highly speculative sexual orientation is what really interests co-workers; and loud-mouthed, tattooed Billy's claim to fame is playing in a post-punk speed bludgeon band. Reluctant at first, new school librarian Abbey eventually joins in on the guys' antics.
