It's a story all too familiar, dismissed all too often — a young female teacher seducing one of her underage students. That twisted power dynamic is explored in the new series A Teacher.
Kate Mara plays the teacher. Nick Robinson plays the student. They both feel things they shouldn't, they try to keep secrets, but they don't escape the consequences.
A Teacher premieres November 10 on FX on Hulu.
Andy Hunsaker has a head full of sitcom gags and nerd-genre lore, and can be followed @AndyHunsaker if you're into that sort of thing.
