Isabella Gomez is heading to class…
HBO Max has released a first-look trailer for its Head of the Class reboot, starring the 23-year-old Colombian actress.
The series, which features original cast member Robin Givens, will debut on November 4.
The 10-episode series, which hails from executive producer Bill Lawrence, is based on the sitcom created by Rich Eustis & Michael Elias that aired on ABC from 1986-91.
It revolves around a group of overachieving high school students who meet their greatest challenge — a teacher, Alicia Gomez (Gomez), who wants them to focus less on grades and more on experiencing life.
Givens reprises her role as Darlene Hayward (née Merriman), catching up with the former high school overachiever as an adult, whose career in law is thriving. Darlene wants what is best for her son and is hyper-focused on setting him up for success. She might need a reminder of the positive impact an out-of-the-box teacher can have — having had her own similar experience in high school — but she’s fighting for the good of all students at Meadows Creek High as co-head of the Parents’ Association.
The HBO Max Original also stars Jorge Diaz, Jolie Hoang Rappaport, Gavin Lewis, Dior Goodjohn, Brandon Severs, Adrian Matthew Escalona, and Katie Beth Hall, with Givens guest-starring alongside Christa Miller.
Amy Pocha & Seth Cohen wrote the pilot episode for the series from Doozer Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television.
