Judd Apatow launched a fake sitcom on NBC.com this week to help promote his upcoming film "Funny People." The show "Yo Teach!" stars Jason Schwartzman playing his "Funny People" character: Mark Taylor Jackson. (Apparently this is one of many side projects the characters are working on.)
Mark Taylor is the lead of a terrible NBC sitcom that seems to be a mix of "Saved By The Bell," "Head of the Class," and "That's So Raven." He wants to help his down and out class learn and grow despite pressure from above.
So far two videos have been posted of the sitcom on NBC.com. The first is the show's EPK (electronic press kit) that gives viewers a behind the scenes look. The next is a scene from an episode entitled "McShakespeare." (Universal offers the complete first season on its site. Unfortunately, the DVDs are all sold out.)
