‘Goldbergs’ Spin-off ‘Schooled’ Wants to Do ‘Titanic’ and ‘Clueless’ Episodes, Does ‘Rent’ This Week [Interview]
Posted on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019 by Fred Topel
Class is in session for The Goldbergs‘ new spin-off this year. Schooled follows Lainey Lewis (AJ Michalka) as she becomes a teacher at William Penn Academy. Mr. Glascott (Tim Meadows) is now the principal and Mr. Mellor (Bryan Callen) and Mr. Ball (Stephen Tobolowsky) are still around too.
What The Goldbergs is to the ’80s, Schooled is to the ’90s. Mark Firek, who co-created Schooled with Adam F. Goldberg, was at ABC’s party for the Television Critics Association and spoke with /Film about the show’s take on the ’90s, and this week’s episode centered on the iconic ’90s musical Rent. Schooled airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. right after The Goldbergs on ABC.
