To help prepare for the beginning of the term, COMEDY CENTRAL will schedule programming blocks of content that have featured the stars of “Community,” along with college-themed movies and scholastic-themed episodes of its own original series, every Friday from 9:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. from August 9 through September 13.
The critically-acclaimed “Community” is a half-hour comedy series about a tight-knit study group at Greendale Community College. At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, “The Soup”), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work. Among the series stars who comprise the group are Chevy Chase, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash. “Community’” will return on NBC with its fifth season in midseason.
“Community” was created by Dan Harmon who serves as Executive Consultant. Russ Krasnoff is Executive Producer, along with Gary Foster, Moses Port and David Guarascio.
