Written by Jeffrey Hatcher and based on the book by Harry G. Allard Jr. and James Marshall, Miss Nelson Is Missing is a comedy about a teacher who can’t control her classroom because she’s just too nice. But when she disappears, her replacement is the hard-as-nails, detention-loving, recess-canceling, homework overloading substitute teacher Viola Swamp! With the Big Test approaching, the kids suddenly realize how much they miss Miss Nelson and they’ll do anything – including hiring a private eye – to solve the mystery!
