There are some teachers who don't play by the rules, who ruin lives instead of changing them for the better. They'll go dangerously beyond the lesson plan to fulfill their youthful fantasies and selfish desires, often dragging students down with them into a world of deceit and danger. The educators exposed in Investigation Discovery's new, three-part series Bad Teachers had been beloved by students, looked up to by faculty peers, and trusted by parents. Little did anyone know that their extra-curricular activities crossed the line into twisted chemistry, secret lust, shocking exploitation, and felony seduction. Interviews with former students, loved ones, and law enforcement paint a portrait of teachers who abused their power and found themselves on the wrong side of detention.

The show originally aired on the AMC network for five seasons, from January 20, 2008 to September 29, 2013. It tells the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with lung cancer. Together with his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), White turns to a life of crime by producing and selling crystallized methamphetamine to secure his family's financial future before he dies, while navigating the dangers of the criminal world. The title comes from the Southern colloquialism “breaking bad”, meaning to “raise hell” or turn toward crime. Breaking Bad is set and filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
