When it comes to comedy, NBC knows how to make us laugh. This fall, they are debuting the sitcom “Community,” which stars comedian and actor Chevy Chase and Joel McHale of “The Soup.” The fictitious Greendale Community College is the backdrop for a group of misfits who form a study group in order to support one another in their studies. But the more the group gets together, the more they learn about the quarks and idiosyncrasies of themselves and one another.
Directed by Emmy Award-winning directors Joe and Anthony Russo of “Arrested Development,” “Community” contains the same whimsical and bizarre humor and characters as some of NBC’s other smash hits like “The Office” and “30 Rock.” But the college setting pokes fun at academic life, the community college culture and the band of characters that comprise the cast like a high-strung perfectionist, a 28-year-old drop-out with something to prove, a sassy middle-aged divorcee and pop culture junkie.
The show premieres Thursday, September 17 9:30/8:30c on NBC.
Here is a preview clip of “Community” that is sure to entice, draw some serious laughs and introduce you to NBC’s newest characters.
