Gabriel Iglesias is a high school history teacher at his alma mater in Netflix’s new comedy, Mr. Iglesias.
As the titular character, he’ll teach a group of misfit students to not only save them from being “counseled out” by a bully assistant principal (Oscar Nunez), but to help them unlock their full potential.
“I’ve been working to close the gap between the ‘haves’ and the have nots,” Iglesias says in the trailer.
The cast also includes Sherri Shepherd, Jacob Vargas, Maggie Geha, Richard Gant, Cree Cicchino, Fabrizio Guido, Gloria Aung, Coy Stewart and Tucker Albrizzi. Iglesias, Ron DeBlasio, Joe Meloche and showrunner Kevin Hench are all executive producers.
Class is in session June 21 on Netflix.
