The TV pilot for “Bad Teacher” has gotten a late series order over at CBS for the 2013-2014 season, the network announced Wednesday.

Based on the feature film that starred Cameron Diaz, the sitcom “Bad Teacher” stars Ari Graynor (“Fringe”) as “an always inappropriate, fearless and unapologetic former trophy wife who masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man after her wealthy husband leaves her penniless,” according to CBS.

“Bad Teacher” becomes the sixth comedy CBS has picked up for this fall.

The pilot has been adapted by Hilary Winston (“Community”), who co-executive produces alongside Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (who wrote the screenplay for the film).
