Characters

Set in New Jersey, Teachers stars Justin Bartha as Jeff Cahill, a skilled, irreverent young English teacher at the fictitious Filmore High School, whose apparent apathy toward his job masks his actual wisdom concerning teaching at an underfunded school Sarah Alexander co-stars as idealistic British history teacher Alice Fletcher, his only kindred spirit on the faculty, for whom Jeff also has romantic feelings Alice does not reciprocate these feelings, but she is becoming fonder of him Radio personality Phil Hendrie plays Dick Green, an apathetic phys-ed and physics teacher, who spends his afternoons behind the gym Deon Richmond plays Calvin Babbitt, the drama teacher whose attitude about teaching falls somewhere between Jeff's and Alice's He often gets caught up in Jeff's schemes Kali Rocha stars as the uncaring, rule-abiding Principal Emma Wiggins Matt Winston stars as Mitch Lenk, a math teacher and lap dog to Principal Wiggins It is implied that he is romantically interested in her Sarah Shahi stars as Tina Torres, an attractive teacher from Mexico She is Alice's possible rival for Jeff's affections, though it seems Jeff prefers Alice It is revealed in Episode 05 "Testing 1-2-3" that she does not have her teaching license, having gone to school, but taking jobs before she took her finals However, she stated later in the episode that she will be taking them

Production

Like many American sitcoms, Teachers was shot before a studio audience

The series began development under the title Filmore Middle, which reflected its original middle school setting

Though adapted for American television by Matt Tarses, a writer and producer of the critically lauded series Sports Night and Scrubs, Teachers was panned by many critics including the San Francisco Chronicle's Tim Goodman as unoriginal and clichéd The show was quickly cancelled by NBC, the news coming on May 15
