Tony Danza makes his head-of-the-class debut on A&E's "Teach" Friday night. The docu-series follows the former "Who's the Boss?" star as he tackles teaching sophomore English at Philadephia's Northeast High School.
Danza's yearlong assignment offers a look at a drastically different side of the actor and an up-close focus on one busy public school.
In a recent visit with the TODAY show, Danza shared his early concerns about the project.
"When I got there and I was actually in it, then I thought, "Uh-oh, maybe I made a big mistake, in that I may not only let down the kids, make a fool out of myself, but the hubris it takes to stroll in there and say you're going to be a teacher," Danza explained.
Friday's premiere sees Danza meet his students and fellow teachers for the first time.
