ABC’s newest comedy, Abbott Elementary, brings viewers behind the scenes at Willard R. Abbott school in Philadelphia. Starring Quinta Brunson as Janine Teagues, the show follows her through the highs and lows of being a new teacher at the underfunded public school.

With Insecure gone, the buzz from this show on Twitter really pushed me to check it out. The first three episodes are available and it's become one of the new shows on my radar, especially since it again highlights and centers around Black-led stories.

It's at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. You may also recognize Quinta (lead, writer, and executive producer for the project), from Instagram, Buzzfeed, and other viral moments that eclipsed those:



What's cool is the show is based in Philly and Quinta herself is from there. In ways similar to Insecure, it's nice to see Black women helm projects for them, by them, especially with how both had routes in digital media ahead of their big break. I'm really digging it so far.

 
Loving this show so far. It really, really captures the spirit of Philadelphia that I haven’t seen from other shows (my family is from the area and I lived there for awhile) — plus I would watch Sheryl Lee Ralph doing absolutely anything.
 
When I tell you this is the only show I currently watch that I have to tune into as it airs live. Janelle James and William Stanford Davis steal this show anytime they are on screen.

Much like Issa Rae, it’s been truly amazing to watch Quinta’s rise from a platform that could not contain her immense creativity to now creating/starring in the best reviewed network comedy in probably 10 years.
 
My boyfriend and I have been watching this, and besides Ghosts, this is the only other show we look forward to each week. It’s become a firm favorite. It helps when you have a good cast that brings it to life.

Sorry to hijack, but is US Ghosts good? I LOVE the UK one and was worried about the remake but love Rose McIver?

Also, watched the first ep of Abbott and laughed out loud a few times, the buzz on twitter got me there but the pilot is gonna make me stay.

I'm really enjoying the US version of Ghosts. Similarly, it's entertaining comfort television.

It’s totally worth it. Rose is a delight. We held off watching the US version for a little while since I’m a fan of the original, but it’s been surprisingly good.
