HBO Max has ordered a reboot of the ABC comedy, Head of the Class.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streamer has ordered a pilot plus five additional scripts. Amy Pocha and Seth Cohen will write the pilot and serve as showrunners with Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley. Bill Lawrence will produce along with Jeff Ingold, Liza Katze, Pocha, Cohen, Cragg and Bradley. No casting details were announced.
Created by Rich Eustis and Michael Elias, Head of the Class ran for five seasons between 1986 and 1991 on ABC. It starred Howard Hesseman as a teacher who helps a group of high school students — played by Dan Frischman, Dan Schneider, Tony O’Dell, Robin Givens and Kimberly Russell — realize that there is more to life than grades. A short-lives spinoff series titled Billy aired in 1992 but was canceled after one season.
The Head of the Class reboot is the latest series to be announced for the streamer. Other shows include Justice League Dark, a Green Lantern series, a Strange Adventures series, Gossip Girl, Dune, Gremlins, Overlook and Adventure Time: Distant Lands.
HBO Max launches on May 27.
