SERIES PREMIERE: THOSE WHO CAN'T - Thursday, February 11 at 10:30pm ET/PT
Those Who Can't is truTV's first foray into full-length scripted comedy. The half-hour comedy follows three trouble-making teachers, played by show creators Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy of the Denver-based comedy troupe The Grawlix. More inept than the kids they teach, they're out to beat the system as they struggle to survive each day on their own terms. Joining them is Maria Thayer (Eagleheart) the school librarian with an insuppressible passion for life.
Guest stars include Sarah Michelle Gellar, Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm), T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley), Peter Stormare (Fargo, The Big Lebowski) and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs).
Dean Lorey (Arrested Development) is the show runner and an executive producer. Also serving as executive producers on Those Who Can't are Tracey Baird (Flight of the Conchords) and Krysia Plonka (Billy On The Street) of Thank You, Brain! Productions; Michael Rotenberg and Josh Lieberman of 3 Arts Entertainment; and Richard Korson.
Pilot: In tonight's series premiere episode, when the school bully begins picking on some of the teachers at Smoot High, the teachers exact a terrible (and stupid... and illegal) revenge. Even the librarian gets in on the action... when she's not de-penising library books.
