As ABC’s first new comedy TV to quadruple its ratings after delayed cross-platform viewing, Abbott Elementary School quickly became the network’s highest-rated comedy and most-tweeted comedy of the year on television and has a 98% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Prepare now for the critically acclaimed hit with the release of Warner Bros. homeentertainment Abbott Elementary: The Complete First Season on DVD October 18, 2022. Featuring all thirteen hilarious episodes, Abbott Elementary: The Complete First Season is priced at SRP$24.98 and is also available on Digital via purchase from all major digital retailers.
The resounding success of the 2021-2022 television season, Abbott Elementary School was recently nominated for seven Emmys® Awards including Outstanding Comedy Series, Actor and Lead Writer nominations for Quinta Brunson, Supporting Actor nominations for Tyler James Williams, Janelle James and Sheryl Lee Ralph, and for Cast.
Abbott Elementary School is a workplace comedy about a group of dedicated and passionate teachers – and a slightly deaf principal – who are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds against them, they are determined to help their students be successful in life. Although these incredible public servants are outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do – even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude towards raising kids.
Quinta Brunson created and stars as Janine Teagues in Abbott Elementary School, and she’s executive producing the series alongside Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker of Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions, and Randall Einhorn. In addition to Brunson, the cast includes Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, William Stanford Davis as Mr. Johnson, and Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard. The series is produced by Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and 20th Television, part of Disney Television Studios.
