What’s the show about?
From the producers: This irresistibly fun show follows Dewey, a down-on-his-luck wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. Completely disinterested in reading, writing and arithmetic, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mic-dropping rock band.
