Bad Education Teaser with Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney

-

Following a look at their March 2020 schedule yesterday, HBO today debuted the Bad Education teaser trailer, which gives you a first look at the April 25 release. You can watch the Bad Education teaser using the player below.

Inspired by true events, Bad Education, premiering Saturday, April 25 (8:00-9:30 p.m. ET/PT), follows Frank Tassone (Hugh Jackman) and Pam Gluckin (Allison Janney) who reign over a popular Long Island school district on the verge of the nation’s top spot, spurring record college admissions and soaring property values.

But when an embezzlement scheme surfaces that threatens to destroy all they’ve built, Frank is forced to maintain order and secrecy — by whatever means necessary.

The film will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners’ streaming platforms.

Bad Education is directed by Cory Finley and written by Mike Makowsky and is based on a New York Magazine article by Robert Kolker.

The film stars Academy Award nominated and Golden Globe and Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables) and Emmy, Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Allison Janney (I, Tonya, Mom).

The film also stars Ray Romano (The Big Sick, The Irishman) as Big Bob Spicer, the school board president. The additional cast members includes Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers), Alex Wolff (Hereditary), Rafael Casal and Annaleigh Ashford.

Bad Education, an HBO Films presentation, is directed by Cory Finley (Thoroughbreds), written by Mike Makowsky, and based on New York Magazine article The Bad Superintendent by Robert Kolker.

The movie was produced by Fred Berger and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones for Automatik; Julia Lebedev, Edward Vaisman, and Oren Moverman for Sight Unseen Pictures; and Mike Makowsky for Slater Hall. The executive producers are Leonid Lebedev and Caroline Jacko.

Bad Education made its World Premiere as a Special Presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the film earned rave reviews. In a highly competitive situation, HBO beat out a number of theatrical distributors for the rights.
