Glenn Howerton, of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" fame, goes from playing an underachieving bar owner to playing a washed-up Harvard professor in the new NBC comedy "A.P. Bio," for which a new first-look preview has been released.

Executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Seth Meyers and created and written by former SNL writer/cast member Mike O'Brien, the series follows a down-and-out philosophy scholar who, after losing his job at Harvard, grudgingly agrees to work as a public high school teacher. When he discovers that he can make the students in his A.P. Biology class do whatever he wants, he decides to assign them a specific and strange task: to "catfish" his old nemesis at Harvard as a part of a revenge effort to win back his old job.

Co-starring Tom Bennett, Lyric Lewis, Mary Sohn, and Jean Villepique with Patton Oswalt playing the public high-school principal, "A.P. Bio" will launch with a special preview on Thursday, February 1st before moving to its regular time slot on March 1st.

When disgraced Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) loses out on his dream job, he is forced to return to Toledo, Ohio, and work as a high school Advanced Placement Biology teacher. As he comes crashing into Whitlock High School, Jack makes it absolutely clear he will not be teaching any biology. Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, Jack decides instead to use the kids for his own benefit. Eager to prove that he is still king of the castle, Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt) struggles to control the force of nature that is Jack Griffin.
