Nickelodeon has given a straight-to-series order for a TV adaptation of School of Rock.
Variety has confirmed that Nickelodeon and Paramount TV will work on the project, based on the 2003 Jack Black comedy of the same name.
The show will focus on Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star who poses as a substitute teacher at an elite prep school and introduces the precocious students to the appeal of rock ‘n’ roll.
“School of Rock” will be written and executive produced by showrunners Jim and Steve Armogida, while “School of Rock” director Richard Linklater and producer Scott Rudin will join as executive producers.
Production of “School of Rock” is slated to commence this fall for a spring 2015 debut.
