Based on the webseries of the same name, TV Land’s Teachers is the fully produced half-hour version of the critically acclaimed webseries. It stars members of the former Chicago improve troupe The Katydids, so-named because each member’s first name was some form of Kate/Cate. Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien, and Kathryn Renée Thomas round out the cast of elementary school teachers who can barely keep their own lives together, much less the lives and behaviors of a classroom full of screaming kids. You can tell that this group of women really works well together. Great comedy is born through comfortable relationships, and these Cates and Katies can really crush some comedy. The cast is completed with character actor Tim Bagley as the principal, and resident hunk Ryan Caltagirone. Caltagirone plays the part of “Hot Dad”, and it’s the role he was born to play. Taking off his shirt, he puts his built bod on display. This hot dad is one pupil these teachers would love to tutor, and fans agree. Funny, fresh, and full of fine fellows, Teachers is definitely a show to check out. At the very least you can check out Ryan Caltagirone.
