NEW YORK, August 8, 2013 – COMEDY CENTRAL is enrolling in Greendale Community College this semester!  The cable television premiere of “Community” kicks off with a special 10-episode block of fan-favorite episodes on September 15 from noon – 5:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.  Starting September 20, well-studied fans and clueless freshmen can start “Community” cramming when the series settles into the schedule with a four-episode block airing weekly every Friday from 9:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m., beginning with season one.  During the Friday premieres, super fans can use the hashtag #Community for a chance to see their tweets on-air.

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  At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, “The Soup”), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked.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.  Tristram Shapeero is Executive Producer/Director.  The series is a Krasnoff Foster Entertainment production, in association with Universal Media Studios and Sony Pictures Television.

    Based off they way things have gone for NBC in the comedy department the past number of years I would not be surprised to see Community get a sixth season. However, I think it is highly unlikely to ever see a Community movie.

  • EatMorePez

    It also starts in local syndication on September 16. And the promos that Sony cut for local markets are very misleading. They make Community seem like a sex comedy.

    Did they Britta them up?

  • TV Addict

    Lol at the video. It’s so funny because it is so not what the show is at all. It was definitely Britta’d
