ABC’s Abbott Elementary is a new mockumentary-style sitcom about a group of teachers working in the underfunded titular school set in Philadelphia. Quinta Brunson created and stars in the series, which features a cast of hilarious actors you know and love.


Known for her work on A Black Lady Sketch Show, Abbott Elementary marks Brunson’s first major network creation. Inspired by other docu-style sitcoms, she set out to highlight teachers with Black actors at the forefront, rather than pushed to the sidelines.
