NEW YORK, September 12, 2013 – COMEDY CENTRAL has enrolled in Greendale Community College! The cable television premiere of “Community” kicks off with a special 10-episode block of fan-favorite episodes Sunday, September 15 from 11:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. ET/PT.

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 At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, “The Soup”), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked.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 be returning to NBC’s 2013 – 2014 schedule for its fifth season.
