Like so many other tropes of the 1980s, the theme of busty-teacher-as-sex-predator that fueled many a teen comedy (and locked-bathroom meditation session) appears to be enjoying a resurgence as well, as THR is reporting that J.J. Abrams will produce the unambiguously titled spec Hot For Teacher for Paramount:
"Hot" is a "Superbad"-like story of a high school senior who sets out to have sex with his teacher before he graduates.
Dyer was a writer-producer on such shows as "DAG" and "Andy Richter Controls the Universe," and is a supervising producer on Showtime's "Californication."
Expect the viral campaign to commence shortly, with a mysterious, shaky-home-video trailer in which an 8th grade science fair erupts into chaos following a series of explosions and a tumbling pair of Statue of Liberty-sized panties. (And a note to any frustrated screenwriters out there: Just because Hot For Teacher will be first out of the gate is no reason to abandon your own, one-third-completed outline forNailing Miss Scarf—"a Sarah Marshallesque coming-of-age tale set amid the batter-filled mixing bowls of a junior high Home Ec class..."—as the market can surely sustain more than one take on the educator-sexing genre.)
