Craig Robinson and Greg Daniels’ new comedy

April 10 update: Craig says the show is titled ‘Mr. Robinson.’

From Deadline:

In his first major sale this season, The Office developer/executive producer Greg Daniels has set up a comedy at NBC starring The Office regular Craig Robinson and written by the show’s supervising producer Owen Ellickson. The untitled project centers on a talented musician (Robinson) with rough edges who adjusts to his new life as a music teacher in a big-city middle school, where he encounters teacher politics and the temptations of single moms.

Congratulations, Craig, Greg, and Owen!

  1. Good for Craig. Reading the synopsis though, it kinda sounds like The Steve Harvey Show

  2. So wait, is this premiering next fall?

    Great to see Greg will be involved, even if he continues to be less involved with Parks & Rec.

  3. Yay!!!! I love Craig! He is so talented. Show sounds great. I’m very happy for everyone and can’t wait to watch it!

  4. This definitely sounds promising. Craig is a great actor, loved him in Pineapple Express. I can definitely see this happening with the “big city” mentioned being Chicago, also his hometown. With the push for education, and need for teachers as well as the recent teachers strike in Chicago that has been in the media, it could definitely draw some attention. Of course it’s a comedy so not necessarily the same crowd, just saying I can see how Greg sold it to the execs. Smart move.
