Somewhere deep in the Zoomiverse, at a college you’ve never heard of, a miserable professor is teaching his first online class to a group of confused adult learners.
Series co-creator Brad Riddell is a professor who had to make a very quick transition to online teaching when the Covid-19 Pandemic struck. It occurred to him, and his co-creators Sandy Sternshein and David Pasquesi, that remote learning needed a good send-up. Plus, we were bored, and we knew lots of really funny people who were also bored, so it seemed like the right thing to do. Distant Learners is a comedy about a disparate collection of lonely adults seeking degrees through the Later in Life Learning program of the local college.
