According to reports, NBC has ordered six episodes of his new comedy series. The show, which was first announced as a possibility in the fall of 2012, was given a pilot order from the network.
Robinson stars in the show as a talented musician with rough edges, who adjusts to his new life as a music teacher in a big-city middle school, where he encounters teacher politics and the temptations of single moms.
In addition to Robinson, the untitled series, will feature Larenz Tate and Amandla Stenberg. Tate would play Robinson’s character’s brother and partner in the duo’s band, The Filthy Gentleman. Stenberg would play a spunky, fearless and smart 8th grader who yearns to learn to sing despite the fact that she can’t.
At this time, there is no time set for Robinson’s series to air.
