Meet the Cast of ‘Mr. Robinson’ (VIDEO)

Craig Robinson (The Office) returns to television with another set of quirky co-workers (and some original songs!) in Mr. Robinson. The show focuses on a Chicago club musician who becomes a public school teacher, and is actually based on Robinson’s own life, when he was a music teacher in Chicago.

Expect plenty of singing and funny hijinks. Rounding out the cast are some TV veterans like Peri Gilpin (Frasier) and Tim Bagley (Monk), along with Benjamin Koldyke (Big Love), Meagan Good (Deception), Brandon T. Jackson (Californication), Amandla Stenberg (Sleepy Hollow) and Spencer Grammer (As the World Turns).

Watch the video above as the cast talks about their new show with TV Insider.
