The story of a southern suburban high school and the two people who conspire to run it the vice principals. Neal Gamby (Danny McBride) and Lee Russell (Walton Goggins) are a pair of ambitious administrators who put their mutual disdain aside in order to sabotage newly appointed principal Dr. Belinda Brown - a plan that bears fruit at the end of Season One when Brown is set up disgraced and forced to resign. The euphoria that Gamby and Russell experience in being named interim co-principals is short-lived, however, when their cars are set on fire in the school parking lot and Gamby is shot by a masked assailant. Could it be Belinda Brown's revenge, or something more sinister? Will Gamby survive, return to work and win back Amanda? Can Russell handle the demands of running a school in Gamby's absence?
