Big School is a six-episode ensemble comedy created and written by David Walliams. The Little Britain actor also stars in the production along with Catherine Tate and Frances de la Tour.
Chemistry teacher Mr. Church (David Walliams) loses interest in teaching after his students are non-responsive to a spectacular experiment. Ready to hand in his notice he decides to stick it out as he becomes smitten with the new French teacher Miss Postern who incidentally has never been to France. Mr. Church who is constantly annoyed by the other members of the school staff tries his hand at capturing Miss Postern’s heart.
Mark Freeland, BBC head of In-house Comedy, said, “Led by David Walliams, it’s an absolute privilege to work with such a brilliant cast and off-screen production team. Like my Latin GCSE, nothing can go wrong. At least that’s what I thought at the time.”
Big School airs on BBC One August 16th.
