Abbott Elementary School
This great freshman comedy about teachers in an underfunded elementary school in Philadelphia gets even better the more we get to know these real teachers. Once an optimist, Janine (series creator Quinta Brunson) urges her fellow teachers—the “work family”—to share some personal secrets after learning that Jacob (Chris Perfetti) has kept the details of his private life private from her because he considers her a “work friend”. The ploy can backfire when Janine begins to feel she’s being judged after sharing a pertinent detail about her own life. In a strong subplot, Gregory (Tyler James Williams) discovered that he still had a lot to learn about teaching, when Barbara (Sheryl Lee Ralph) and Melissa (Lisa Ann Walter) stepped in to instruct him on letting loose in front of his young students.
A pivotal Season 1 finale finds the Queens in self-reflection as they prepare to be inducted into the Hip Hop Fall of Fame — minus Brianna (night), who left the group.
