Rob Thomas to run ABC's Miss/Guided
Miss/Guided is a single-camera sitcom staring Judy Greer (Love Monkey). She plays a former high school nerd that comes back to her alma mater as a guidance counselor and finds that high school is still high school, even for the adults. It was created by Caroline Williams, a writer on The Office; I'm guessing Thomas is being brought on to guide this show with an experienced hand, since Williams has never run a show before.
I've seen the pilot for Miss/Guided and found it to be light, smart, funny, and well-acted. The addition of Thomas will only make the the show better. Imagine the smart-ass dialogue that came out of Veronica's and other VM characters' mouths transferred to a show that's a) about high school and b) is a comedy? The potential for a very funny show is quite high here.[via Pop Candy]
