NBC has today announced a premiere date for its upcoming comedy series A.P. Bio starring Glenn Howerton (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia).

The comedy centers on a philosophy scholar who loses out on his dream job and goes to work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher but he makes it clear he will not be teaching any biology.

Mike O'Brien created the comedy. He executive produces with Lorne Michaels, Seth Meyers, Andrew Singer, Mike Shoemaker and Osmany Rodriguez. Universal Television and Broadway Video produce.
