HBO has unveiled the first trailer for Hugh Jackman’s comedy-drama Bad Education. The movie is base on a true story, which follows Frank Tassone (Jackman) and Pam Gluckin (Allison Janney), “who reign over a famous Long Island school district on the edge of the nation’s top spot, driving record college admissions and soaring property values. However, things come crashing down for Frank, when a student reporter starts to trace fraud at the Roslyn School District, in Long Island after the assistant superintendent makes a critical mistake that hints at the corruption that spans over a decade. Because of the discovery of the fraud scheme that threatens to destroy all they’ve built, Frank is forced to keep order and secrecy — by whatever means required.”
The movie also draws from the New York Magazine article “The Bad Superintendent” by Robert Kolker.
The movie also stars Ray Romano as Bob Spicer, Geraldine Viswanathan as Rachel Bhargava, and Alex Wolff as Nick Fleischman.
The film is set to air on April 25th on HBO network.
