From Dan Harmon ("The Sarah Silverman Program") and Emmy Award-winners Joe and Anthony Russo("Arrested Development") comes "Community," a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend 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 At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, "The Soup"), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked.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.

Also among the series stars who comprise the group are comedy legend Chevy Chase ("Chuck") as Pierce, a man whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom; Gillian Jacobs ("The Book of Daniel") as Britta, the 28-year old drop out with something to prove; Yvette Nicole Brown ("Rules of Engagement") as Shirley, a sassy middle-aged divorcee; Danny Pudi ("Greek") as Abed, a pop culture junkie; Alison Brie ("Mad Men") as Annie, a high-strung perfectionist; Donald Glover ("30 Rock") as Troy, a former high school football star trying to find his way and Ken Jeong ("The Hangover") as Senor Chang.

Season two will kick off with a guest appearance by the legendary Betty White ("The Golden Girls"). The six-time Emmy-Award winner and cultural icon will play professor June Bauer, an esteemed, but slightly unhinged anthropology professor. This season will also feature guest appearances by Drew Carey, as Jeff Winger's former boss at the law firm, Rob Corddry, as Jeff's former colleague, and "The Daily Show's"John Oliver, reprising his role as Professor Duncan. This year we will learn more about the characters' lives – seeing them in their home environments from time to time, and in addition, the study group gains a new member as the former Spanish professor Senor Chang decides to enroll as a full time student so that he can join the group.

"Community" is a Krasnoff Foster Entertainment, Harmonious Claptrap, Russo Brothers production, Universal Media Studios production in association with Sony Pictures Television. Russ Krasnoff ("The Soloist"), Dan Harmon ("The Sarah Silverman Program"), Joe Russo ("Arrested Development"), Anthony Russo ("Arrested Development"), Garrett Donovan ("Scrubs"), Neil Goldman ("Scrubs") and Gary Foster("The Soloist") serve as executive producers.
