"Having worked with David, Rob and Scott for many years on Sunny, it gives us great pleasure to see them make their own stamp on FX," said Grad. "Unsupervised is a great addition to our comedy roster and, like all of our comedies, it's smart and really funny."

Unsupervised is produced by FX Productions, in association with RCG Productions and Floyd County.
