NEW YORK, May 22 (UPI) -- CBS says it has ordered a single-camera comedy based on the 2011 Hollywood film "Bad Teacher" for the 2013-14 television season.

Graynor, a former cast member of "The Sopranos," will play "an always inappropriate, fearless and unapologetic former trophy wife who masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man after her wealthy husband leaves her penniless," a synopsis of "Bad Teacher" said.

Cameron Diaz played the role in the film version.
