In the new drama Submission, Stanley Tucci plays a college professor who messes with the wrong student.

Here’s the official synopsis (via Deadline):

The story follows Ted Swenson (Tucci), a once-acclaimed author who now teaches writing at a small liberal arts college. Though his marriage to Sherrie (Kyra Sedgwick) is comfortable, he finds himself drowning in discontent as he teaches unteachable students and partakes in stuffy departmental dinners where he drinks too much and is in the company of smug colleagues whom he dislikes yet fears he resembles. But when a new pupil, Angela Argo (Addison Timlin), shows promise, Ted focuses on nurturing her career, and she appears more than willing to devote the one-on-one time required. Basking in Angela’s youth, talent, and admiration, just as she benefits from Ted’s wisdom, experience, and professional connections, it’s only a matter of time before lines are crossed and it becomes unclear whether Ted is predator or prey and Angela is victim or victimizer.
