Yahoo unveiled 18 new projects including comedy, The Pursuit. The show is a new series about what it means to be in your late 20s in 2015 in Manhattan. It’s been described as an edgier, 21st century take on Friends in the era of social media. We follow a group of characters in pursuit of what their generation desires: success, love, material wealth, happiness….or maybe some, all, or none of the above. The Pursuit is from executive producers Scott Stuber (Ted, Identity Thief, The Break-Up, Role Models) and Dylan Clark (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Heat) and director and executive producer Beth McCarthy Miller (Saturday Night Live, Modern Family). This series will join the already existing comedy programming line-up of Community Season 6, Paul Feig’s Other Space, and Sin City Saints starring Malin Akerman.
It’s back. And here is your first season 6 trailer for the new season of Community coming to Yahoo! Screen on March 17th.
March 17th is officially the day we’ve all been waiting for as it marks the return of Community into our lives. While the 6 season has fulfilled many fan dreams for #sixseasonandamovie to be realized, they didn’t come out on the other side unscathed. They are down a Troy and Shirley, and a network as well. For the show is streaming this season on Yahoo! for the first time. But we’re going off track here, the most important fact here is that Community is back! And the trailer is in the style of the Avengers: Age of Ultron.
With the pick up of two more pilots, NBC now brings their total up to seven this season. The two new additions, People Are Talking and Take It From Us, are both multicamera comedies from producers who have planted their feet in solid ground so far in their careers. People Are Talking, which had a script commitment attached, comes from writer DJ Nash (Growing Up Fisher) and executive producer Will Packer (Ride Along). The comedy focuses on sex, race and everything else your parents told you to stay away from. Nash will be writing the script and exec produce alongside Packer. There has already been a remake in the works of Uncle Buck, from Packer. People Are Talking also reunites NBC with Nash, whose credits include network comedies Growing Up Fisher, Guys With Kids, Up All Night and Bent, among others. Read More
Community, where to begin. After it’s debut on NBC in September of 2009, this show has earned it’s keep through some of the toughest means possible. Despite the critics and hard core fans’ love and support through the first 3 seasons, rumors circulated that the show would be cancelled. Read More
As Community is being revived by Yahoo!, it has some holes to fill. With former series regulars Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown not returning for season 6 (amongst other smaller roles), there’s room for some new faces at Greendale. According to TV Guide, Keith David and Paget Brewster will join the show as series regulars.
Brewster will play Francesca “Frankie” Dart, a consultant hired to help shape things up at the underachieving school. Meanwhile, David will play Elroy Patashnik, a retired scientist who comes to Greendale to reinvent himself. They will join returning castmembers Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, Kevin Jeong, and Gillian Jacobs.
Season six is set to begin production on November 17th, with thirteen episodes ready to go by early 2015.
According to TV Guide, Yvette Nicole Brown will be leaving the show for personal reasons. Brown has been a regular member of the cast playing Shirley Bennett since the first season in 2009. Brown had asked to leave her contract in order to tend to her ailing father. Read More
Who is Dan Harmon? Well, he’s a writer and the host of the popular podcast, Harmontown, but you probably know him from being fired from Community (the show he created). After the firing mess, Harmon took his live show/podcast on tour around the country and filmed it for a documentary. Sarah Silverman, Joel McHale, Ken Jeong, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, John Oliver and more appear in the trailer for Harmontown that was released this week. Harmontown hits theaters and VOD on October 3rd.
We have ourselves a while until the Yahoo-revived 6th season of Community is ready to
air stream. However Yahoo releases a teaser clip for the new season that sets the stage for some lofty plans for season 6 which basically includes rebuilding it like the 6 Million Dollar Man.
We’re still months away from the revived season 6 of Community airing on Yahoo. But it’s always fun to see the blooper reel from the previous season. Mainly because it gives off the vibe that being on set for that show is completely fun. It also will reaffirm any love you have toward Alison Brie a bit more (if that’s possible) because she’s easily the most fun part minus Dany Pudi (Abed) taking a stab at some Nic Cage impressions. The language is NSFW, that is unless it’s okay to hear someone yell about lacerated anuses and shout f*ck 32 times.
