Episode Preview of 'Sit Down, Shut Up' Premiere
FOX brings viewers a new animated comedy which centers on the lives of the teachers and staff of Knob Haven High School.  The pilot episode of Sit Down, Shut Up introduces this group of nine quirky characters who struggle with their own insecurities, prioritizing them over their students' needs. 

On the premiere of Sit Down, Shut Up, we find Knob Haven High School in the midst of a financial crisis.  It's up to Acting Principal Sue Sezno (Kenan Thompson) to push the school towards winning the upcoming football game in order to receive donations from alumni.  If she fails and can't cut other costs, it's the pink slip for one faculty member.

But on the comically worse side of things, a scandal has erupted within the school.  A certain batch of pills found in a student's locker has been confiscated, and has made their way to the faculty.  Unfortunately, it's Vice Principal Stuart Proszakian (Will Forte) who ends up with them, and they're suddenly a part of his daily diet. 

Created by Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development), Sit Down, Shut Up is based on a short-lived Australian sitcom of the same name.  The characters were designed by director Mo Willems (Sheep in the Big City), with the voices of Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Kristin Chenoweth, Will Forte, Tom Kenny, Nick Kroll, Cheri Oteri, Kenan Thompson, and Henry Winkler.  Sit Down, Shut Up is produced by Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Josh Weinstein Productions, The Hurwitz Company, The Tannenbaum Company, Granada America and Tantamount.

Get to know more of the characters on the video below.  From the suicidal German teacher to the enraged but underappreciated librarian, they are the unconventional staff of Knob Haven High School, believing that their students should always come second.

Don't forget to catch the premiere of Sit Down, Shut Up as it airs tonight, April 19, on FOX at 8:30pm.
