NBC goes back to school

Bartha skein added to Peacock sked

NBC has added another laffer to its midseason roster, ordering six episodes of the skein “Filmore Middle.”

Sitcom stars Justin Bartha (“National Treasure”) as Jeff, a rule-breaking English teacher at a New Jersey school. NBC Universal TV Studio is behind the show, which comes from exec producer Matt Tarses.

“Filmore Middle” also stars Sarah Alexander (BBC’s “Coupling”) as a rookie teacher and potential love interest for Bartha’s character. Radio host Phil Hendrie plays a burned-out teacher, while Deon Richmond (“Van Wilder”) stars as a drama teacher and Jeff’s best friend.

Series also stars Matt Winston, Kali Rocha and Grant Rosenmeyer.

Series joins Peacock’s other midseason half-hours waiting in the wings, including the return of critical fave “Scrubs” as well as newbies “Thick and Thin” and “Four Kings.”
