Season 1

Mr. Box Office is an American television sitcom created by Byron Allen and produced by Entertainment Studios about the biggest movie star in the world who is sentenced to community service teaching English at the toughest high school in America.

Marcus Jackson is a movie star who ends up getting sentenced to community service after engaging in an altercation with a paparazzi, forcing Marcus to put his film career on hold.

Due to the fact that he has a teacher's license (since he originally aspired to work as a teacher), the judge presiding in his case orders him to serve a six-month stint as a teacher for underprivileged high school kids in Los Angeles' South Central neighbourhood.

In doing so, Marcus has to deal with his agent Bobby Gold (Jon Lovitz), who constantly attempts to get his client back into film, when he discovers that Marcus has decided that he wants to remain working at the school and help improve his students.

Marcus also deals with the mishaps of his best friends and roommates Tony (Tony T. Roberts) and Jamal (Alex Thomas).

Bill Bellamy, Tim Meadows, Vivica A. Fox, Rick Fox, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Jon Lovitz and Gary Busey star in this comedy.

Byron Allen and Scott Satin executive produce alongside Bellamy, Barry Katz and Carolyn Folks.
