Nick Robinson is heading to FX for their new limited series, A Teacher.
Deadline reports that the Love, Simon star has been cast as a co-lead alongside Kata Mara in the limited series, which will span 10 episodes and be based on Hannah Fidell‘s 2013 Sundance feature.
In the series, Nick will star as Eric, an “all-American [high school] senior,” while Kate will play the role of Claire, “a popular young teacher at a suburban Texas high school.”
“A Teacher explores the story behind the mugshot of a female high school teacher caught in an affair with her male student, revealing the complexities and consequences of these illegal relationships.”
Hanna Fidell will write, direct, and executive produce the adaption, with Kate Mara also executive producing.
Nick will soon be heading to Broadway, where he’s set to star in To Kill A Mockingbird this November.
