According to Deadline, Mr. Box Office is the newest project from the broadcast company that “centers on actor Marcus Jackson (Bellamy) one of the biggest movie stars in the world who, after pushing a paparazzo, finds himself having to put his film career on hold, while relegated to a long-term community service stint teaching underprivileged high school kids in South Central.”
Fox will play a cougar history teacher while former NBA star Rick Fox will take on the role of a physical education teacher at the school. Tim Meadows, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Jon Lovitz and Gary Busey will also star.
The show, created and written by Allen and Scott Satin, is in talks to produce a minimum of 104 episodes over two years and will reportedly air on CW-affiliated stations in the fall.
