ABC gives Miss/Guided a go

Miss GuidedIn the flush of all the returning series with fresh episodes comes this tasty morsel of news. ABC will premiere Miss/Guided, a new sitcom starring Judy Greer (Love Monkey) on March 18.

Miss Guided
is the story of Becky Freeley, who returns to the same high school she went to as a teenager as a guidance counselor, sorta, kinda like Welcome Back, Kotter. But Becky wasn't a sweat hog in her high school days -- she was an ugly duckling with braces and teenage anxieties. Now, as an adult, she hopes to be able to handle HS with more elan. Becky's hopes hit a speed bump when she meets the sexy mechanic-turned Spanish teacher, Tim (Kristoffer Polaha), whom she likes...a lot. Then, she learns that the new English teacher is Lisa Germain (Brooke Burns), her former nemesis back in school. And wouldn't you know it, Lisa likes Tim, too!



This comedy, which nearly made it onto ABC's fall 2007 schedule, has some heavyweight talent behind it starting with Ashton Kutcher (That '70s Show). Miss Guided is created by Caroline Williams (The Office), and Todd Holland (Malcolm in the Middle) directed the pilot.

ABC is giving Miss/Guided a good launch on March 18, putting the half-hour on at 10:30 after a 90-minute Dancing With the Stars. Then, the show will settle in to its regular spot on Thursday, March 20, at 8:00 p.m. with back-to-back episodes.

I saw a promo during LOST, it looked like it had some potential to be funny. So i will definitely be checking this out.

I'm just glad more of the actors from "North Shore" are able to get work. [/sarcasm]

I saw the pilot for this -- it was terrible.

Judy Greer's name annoys me. I feel like it belongs on a librarian in a purple patterned dress with oval glasses.
