Tony Danza eyes Philly teaching gig
Actor would lead classroom for reality programPHILADELPHIA -- Yo, Philly students! Tony Danza might be teaching in a city high school this fall.
The former talk show host and star of the sitcoms "Taxi" and "Who's the Boss?" is planning to star in a new reality show called "Teach."
If approved by Philadelphia education officials, cameras would roll at Northeast High School as Danza co-teaches a 10th-grade English class.
The School Reform Commission will vote next week on allowing at least 13 episodes to be shot and broadcast on the cable channel A&E.
Producers aren't sure when the show would air. They say Danza already is attending teacher training with other first-year instructors in the district.
On Wednesday, school commissioners received a letter from Mayor Michael Nutter supporting the project.
