Your next favourite TV show?

One to watch: Fox's Sit Down, Shut Up, set to debut later this month.

Based on a popular Australian concept, the animated series was adapted by the creative team behind Arrested Development and boasts that show's principal cast regulars, including Jason Bateman and Canadian Will Arnett. The storyline follows a handful of terrible teachers at a rundown high school.

“Each character in the show is more or less modeled after the actor doing the voice,” said executive producer Mitch Hurwitz. “These people are known quantities.”
Even in rough-cut form, the version shown to critics here was hilarious.
