About the Show

From Jason Katims, writer and executive producer of "Friday Night Lights" and "Parenthood," and Jeffrey Seller, producer of the explosive Broadway hit "Hamilton," comes a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor, "How I Met Your Mother") sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school's lackluster theater department, he galvanizes not only the faculty and students, but the entire working-class town. Inspired by a true story.
