FX’s announced the release of a new drama, A Teacher. The drama follows a forbidden love story that takes the form of a teacher and a student. This Hulu series stars Kate Mara (House of Cards) and Nick Robinson (Love, Simon). The drama sets to debut on Tuesday, November 10, 2020, via Deadline.
This series has aspects of a thriller and melodrama as passions of the heart control the main characters. A Teacher is an adaptation of the 2013 film of the same name directed and written by Hannah Fidell. Fidell is also the executive director and producer of A Teacher.
WHAT IS A TEACHER ALL ABOUT?
In this series, Mara astars as newcome Claire. She begins a job as a high school teacher in Texas. Although Claire is already married, she gets into a romantic relationship with one of her students, Eric. The character Eric is portrayed by Nick Robinson, who is an all-American football player. He struggles to hide this illicit relationship from his many teammates. Complications ensue as Claire and Eric fall deeper and deeper into their relationship. This association is deemed illegal in the state of Texas.
The drama sets within the broad and vast Texas town filled with cowboy hats, football, and green fields. Seemingly, tension laces the trailer as Eric and Claire attempt to keep their affair secret. It appears almost impossible for the two to keep their relationship concealed as they steal glances at one another in hallways and classrooms. Eventually, things begin to unfold as their forbidden romance is outed, and Eric and Claire must bear the consequences of their actions.
The series A Teacher aims to demonstrate the potentially harmful effects of an adult engaging in a relationship with a minor. It focusses on examining how Eric handles the affair and presents the many sides of such a controversial situation. In a quote from Fidell discussing how she wanted A Teacher to turn out, she explains that her goal was to deliver something different. According to her, the relationship is not exactly as it seems, and Eric could be a victim.
According to Deadline, Fidell aimed to steer clear of romanticizing the student-teacher relationship that many current teen drama shows portray, including Riverdale.
