“Mr. Robinson” centers on a journeyman musician who gets a job as a music teacher at a middle school. While teaching the kids everything from rock to the blues, he simultaneously learns how to put the school’s rules to the test.
Peacock has given the project a six-episode order.
Robinson will star in the comedy, which was initially ordered to pilot in early 2013. “The Office” showrunner Greg Daniels was attached to the laffer last year but has since departed “Mr. Robinson,” Variety has confirmed.
Universal TV and 3 Arts Entertainment will project “Mr. Robinson,” with Mark Cullen, Rob Cullen, Howard Klein and Mark Schulman exec producing.
