Art imitates life for Craig Robinson in new TV series

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Giving audiences a chance to fully engage with NBC’s new summer comedies, the network has announced “Mr. Robinson” will air back-to-back episodes for three weeks beginning with its premiere, Wednesday, Aug. 5 (9-10 p.m.).

As lead singer and keyboardist of the funk band Nasty Delicious, Craig (Craig Robinson, “The Office”) knows a thing or two about working the crowd, but his day job is where he really makes the grade.

Every struggling artist knows the drill: You’ve got to pay the bills while you wait for that big break. So when Craig finds himself short on cash, he takes a job as a substitute high school music teacher. It’s an easy gig, right? Yet when he realizes that the kids think his class is an easy A, Craig’s moved to inspire his students.

Steve Uyehara spoke with Robinson about his new show and his next trip back to the islands.
