THOSE WHO CAN'T - New Episode - Thursday, February 25 at 10:30pm ET/PT
Episode 4 - The Fairbell Tape: When the junk food vending machines get yanked by the PTA, Shoemaker and Abbey go to extreme lengths to get them back. Loren faces off with his old home-ec teacher, while Fairbell's sexual orientation is uncovered with the help of a peculiar videotape. Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm) guest stars as does Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cruel Intentions) as the terrifying head of the PTA who runs the school with an iron yoga-mat clutching fist.
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 (The Crazy Ones), Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm), T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley), Mary Lynn Rajskub (24), 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.
