Here are the thoughts of comedian Donald Glover, 26, who plays Troy on the NBC sitcom “Community.” on  Black History Month:

“We [America] are made of so many different parts. That’s important, to look at all the achievements that have been made. As for Black History Month in general, I’m kinda like, ‘Eh. Not that it’s a bad thing, but I don’t think a month is really substantial. I don’t think it’s a thing that can be bundled into a month. In a larger aspect, I don’t want to be categorized. I think a lot of African Americans have a lot of trouble trying to break out of categories of what people think they are and who they are, and you don’t ever want to label yourself.”

‘Community’ gets chance to grow

By , February 25, 2010

“The thing I love about NBC is that comedies have a chance to grow their legs,” said Gillian Jacobs, who plays Britta. Jacobs and her cast mates talked about the show’s future during a recent set visit at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. “NBC allowed ’30 Rock’ to find its legs, they allowed ‘The Office’ to find its audience, and look at ‘Parks and Recreation.’ It really is taking off this year.”
Dan Harmon, the creator, head writer and executive producer behind “Community” describes NBC’s Thursday-night comedy lineup as a brand and his show as a part of that brand. “We’re like an emcee for an evening of fantastic comedy,” Harmon said. “They put us on at 8 o’clock and we really hold our ground.”

Community in the Paley Center

By , February 18, 2010

Community cast and creative team will be at the Paley Center on Wednesday, March 3, 2010 7:00 pm PT

Get tickets here.

IN PERSON:
Joel McHale, “Jeff Winger”
Chevy Chase, “Pierce”
And additional members of the cast and creative team.

Boasting a crack ensemble cast led by Joel McHale as wisecracking disgraced lawyer Jeff Winger, Community follows the misadventures of a quirky group of students at Greendale Community College, an institute of less than higher learning. Creator Dan Harmon’s cult credentials are impeccable—he’s behind Channel 101 and The Sarah Silverman Program, among other alt-comedy favorites—and Community is an intriguing and wholly successful move into mainstream, ready-for-primetime entertainment. A critical and popular success, Community delights with its rapid-fire, off-kilter comedy, its fundamentally humane heart, and a perfectly deployed Chevy Chase as ragingly inappropriate moist towelette tycoon Pierce Hawthorne.

Alison Brie On Shifting Between ‘Mad Men’ And ‘Community’

By , February 18, 2010

TV Squad has an interview with Alison Brie, on of the stars of ‘Community’. Here are the highlights:

What are we going see from Annie coming up?
Well, I think we’re gonna see Annie maturing a little bit more, and she develops a love interest in the next couple episodes. You see her mature in certain ways, I think, and just in terms of how naïve she is, I think you do kind of see her growing.

Was it tough to play someone who’s 18 and just out of high school?
No! I don’t know why it’s easy for me to connect with that part of myself. And you know, it wasn’t that long ago, so it’s easy, and it’s fun for me to connect with that part, that sheltered girl that is having her first crush and her first kiss, and try to relive those moments through Annie.

Whereas ‘Community’ (compared to “Mad-Man”) is more free-flowing jokes?
Absolutely. It’s just a crazy free-for-all. Again, we do have great respect for the writing and for the work, but because it’s a comedy, I think they want us to have that much fun all the time, and it trickles into the episodes, you know?

Community Chances For 2nd Season

By , February 15, 2010

Two websites, two different views:

The TV Addict – Good News:
Working in its favor: The show seems to get funnier week after week. Plus, if there’s one thing NBC does do right, it’s nurture ratings anemic freshman comedies (see: THE OFFICE, PARKS AND RECREATION and 30 ROCK)
Working against it: Emphasis on ‘ratings anemic,’ with COMMUNITY averaging a mere five million viewers and regularly coming fourth in its timeslot.
Renewal Odds: Positive.

TV Squad:
As for the comedies, ‘Community’ is weak ratings wise, but so is ‘Parks & Recreation.’ If one has to go to make way for new product, it’ll be ‘Community.’ Still to be determined is ‘Parenthood,’ which has aired yet. NBC needs a massive cardiac jolt so don’t be shocked to see nice shows like ‘Community’ and ‘Mercy’ dumped. It’s not fair, but that’s TV.

We are still hoping for the best…
