A&E says the Tony Danza reality show filmed at Northeast High will debut in October.
KYW’s Mike DeNardo reports A&E spent almost all of last school year at Northeast High School, filming Tony Danza as he taught tenth-grade English.
Now, the network says the first of seven hour-long episodes will air Friday, October 1st at 10 pm.
Teach: Tony Danza executive producer Neil A. Cohen said he hopes viewers will come away with an appreciation for how tough it is for a first-year teacher.
“When you’re just starting out, wow, that is a hard job. Over the course of the year, I saw Tony laugh. I saw him cry. He really got put through his paces. And I think really came to bond not just with the students but with his fellow teachers, as well.”
Will there be a second semester of Teach? Cohen said if the ratings are good enough, he hears the Northeast High principal would love to have the A&E crew back.
