GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- ABC’s hit workplace mockumentary, “Abbott Elementary” is back with an all-new episode! The fourth showing of the series titled “New Tech” airs at 9 pm on Tuesday, January 18 on My ABC WOTV4. If you’re a fan of the show, then set your reminders to tune in. Here’s a synopsis of the upcoming episode as shared by ABC.
When a new computer program is introduced at Abbott, Janine is excited to finally help Barbara out with something. However, Barbara is reluctant to accept change and finds herself in a tricky situation when she decides to lie about her students’ results rather than admit defeat. Elsewhere, Melissa surprises Jacob when she offers up a friend to assist with his lesson on unions, but she ends up teaching Jacob an important lesson herself.
“New Tech” was written by Brian Rubenstein and directed by Randall Einhorn.
What is Abbott Elementary?
In this workplace comedy, a group of dedicated, passionate teachers —and a slightly tone-deaf principal —are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life. Though these incredible educators may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do —even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.
