The television adaptation of Night School adds to its cast. 

Multiple outlets confirm that Josh Segarra has been cast in one of the lead roles in the upcoming pilot from NBC.  

The series, like the film, follows a unique mix of adults at a night school GED prep class who unexpectedly bond over their shared experience and find themselves helping each other both inside and outside of the classroom.

Segarra will portray the character played by Kevin Hart’s character in the film — a charming salesman named Teddy Walker. He joins previously announced Shanola Hampton who will play the teacher (the role played by Tiffany Haddish in the film), Collette Wolfe, James Earl, and Joe Massingill.

Segarra’s television credits include Arrow, Orange Is the New Black, The Moodys, The Other Two, Chicago PD, Sirens and the recently canceled AJ and the Queen.
