Actor Harland Williams (“Rocket Man”) and actress Katey Sagal (“Married … With Children”) are set to star in a new original, “Mr. Headmistress,” for ABC’s “The Wonderful World of Disney” franchise.
Production on the made-for began this week in Toronto. Williams stars as Tucker, a con man recently released from prison who’s trying to escape hoodlums after him for a bank debt. To fool them, he disguises himself as the headmistress of a school for girls. Sagal stars as the assistant headmistress, known by the students as Dirty Harriet, who was passed over for the top position.
The made-for is produced by Mr. Headmistress Prods. in association with Walt Disney TV. Jack Brodsky is executive producer and James Frawley directs from the screenplay by David Kukoff and Matt Roshkow.
