Pop TV has greenlit the new comedy series “Best Intentions” from A+E Studios, Propagate Content and Adam Herz (“American Pie”). Eight episodes have been ordered and will go into production in fall 2019.
The logline: “Best Intentions” revolves around Andy Banks, played by David Fynn (“Undateable”), a kind-hearted but painfully awkward single father who is the guidance counselor at the high school his teenage son Nate, played by Daniel Rashid (“Being Frank”), currently attends. Lindsey Gort (“The Carrie Diaries”) plays Katie Baxter, a teacher with whom Andy is smitten; his never-ending hapless efforts to woo her drag Katie headfirst into her own personal misadventures.
Guest starring in the series premiere are Natalie Ganzhorn (“Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark”) as the new girl in school, Benjamin Ayres (“Saving Hope”) and Sarah Levy (“Schitt’s Creek”) as the high school’s vice principal, Becky Fistick.
“Best Intentions” is created by Herz, who also serves as executive producer and writer. Executive producers are Barry Jossen of A+E Studios and Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens and Jay Weisleder of Propagate Content. Steve Pink (“Hot Tub Time Machine”) directs the pilot.
