Hines stars in the HBO comedy “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” but her NBC series is about unleashing enthusiasm. NBC honcho Jeff Gaspin described it as a “feel-good, do-good show” that is family friendly.

“School Pride” will share the 8 p.m. Friday slot with Lisa Kudrow’s “Who Do You Think You Are?” And “School Pride” will air first.
