Philly.com reports on Tony Danza’s upcoming reality show, Teach, in which the TV star spends¬† a year teaching tenth-grade students at Northeast High School in Philadelphia.¬† The curriculum included a unit on Julius Caesar and a field trip to the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.

The show is set to premiere on A&E on October 1.

From the A&E website:

“After more than 30 years in entertainment as an actor, talk show host, Broadway star, cookbook author, pro boxer and song and dance man, Tony Danza faces his toughest audience to date – high school students. Long before the launch of Danza’s showbiz career, he hoped to be a teacher and even earned a degree in history to pursue that dream. “Teach: Tony Danza” chronicles Danza’s journey as he returns to his original dream and takes on the role of English teacher for a class of sophomore students at Northeast High School in Philadelphia. Danza must do some learning of his own as he adapts to the demands of teaching two back-to-back 45 minute periods and handling his diverse class of students of varying abilities. He must also learn to manage extra-curricular activities, charity events and to juggle his personal life throughout the school year. Viewers will experience the trials and tribulations of a first year teacher through the eyes of Danza, his peers, school administrators, and most importantly…his students.”
