Robin Givens Reprises Role Of Darlene Merriman In HBO Max’s ‘Head Of The Class’ Reboot



Inspired by the sitcom of the same time, Head of the Class centers on a group of overachieving high school students who meet their greatest challenge: a teacher, Alicia (One Day at a Time’s Isabella Gomez), who wants them to focus less on grades and more on experiencing life.
