Show Summary
This show was scheduled to premiere in 2003 on NBC as a mid-season replacement. But NBC cancelled the show before it even aired at the time. It finally aired in 2006 on Bravo (US).

In this offbeat comedy, junior corporate lawyer Nick Case (Greg Grunberg, “Felicity”) shares his insight with the audience regarding his competitive relationship with best bud and roommate Jake Galvin (Jason Bateman, “The Hogan Family”), a likable former attorney who jettisons his career for the more noble teaching profession. Jake struggles against classroom bureaucracy to connect with his students -- as well as with an attractive fellow teacher, Liza (Nikki Cox, “Nikki”). Patricia Belcher (“Heartbreakers”), Kyle Gass (“Shallow Hal”) and Leslie Grossman (“Popular”) also star. Jonathan Groff (former head writer of NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”) and Vic Kaplan (“Ellen”) are executive producers. The series, written by Groff and directed by Marc Buckland (NBC’s “Scrubs”), is an NBC Studios production.
