TV Land Orders Comedies ‘Impastor’ and ‘Teachers’ to Series

TV Land has given series orders to two single-camera comedies — “Impastor” and “Teachers” — that are more offbeat than the cablers’ past original skeins.

Both series have 10-episode orders and are targeted to premiere next year.

Impastor” revoles around a man on the run from a loan shark who winds up posting as a gay pastor in a small town. “Teachers” (pictured) stars the six-woman improv comedy troupe the Katydids as elementary school teachers who are earnest about helping students even as their own lives are a mess.

“’Impastor’ and ‘Teachers’ are perfect examples of the type of comedies we’re looking for as TV Land evolves its original series – innovative, unconventional, and hilariously funny for an audience that enjoys smart humor with a hint of heart,” said TV Land prexy Larry Jones.

“Impastor” stars Michael Rosenbaum, Sara Rue and Aimee Garcia. Sitcom vet Christopher Vane created the series and exec produces with Rosenbaum, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum. Rob Greenberg directed and exec produced the pilot.

“Teachers” is a TV spin on a Web series produced by the Katydids: Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas. Ian Roberts and Jay Martel, alums of Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele,” will serve as showrunners and exec produce with Alison Brie, who has been a champion of the Katydids, Matt Miller and Cap Gun TV (home of the “Teachers” Web series).
