SHARE ‘School of Rock’ heads to small screen

Who can forget Jack Black’s amazing performance in Richard Linklater’s wonderful 2003 film “School of Rock,” that also starred Our Town’s Joan Cusack as his nemesis.

Now, Paramount TV will create an initial 13-episode television series for Nickelodeon, with Linklather and the film’s producer Scott Rudin signing on as executive producers for the new TV project.

No casting announcements yet, but the new “School of Rock” is expected to premiere next spring and, like the film, will focus on the Dewey Finn character (portrayed by Black on the big screen) — an unsuccessful rocker, who gets hired as a substitute teacher at a prestigious private school, where he actually teaches his unusual class of kids to become good rock ‘n rollers.
