NBC has renewed Community as the Joel McHale starrer continues to march toward its “six seasons and a movie.”
The beleaguered cult favorite will continue on for a fifth season, NBC announced Friday. The news comes a day after the Thursday comedy wrapped its fourth season, even year-over-year with a 1.3 rating in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic and tying American Idol among adults 18-34.
While Community will continue, it will do so without co-star Chevy Chase, who exited the show in November following a roller-coaster relationship with the NBC series as he grew frustrated with the direction his character was taking. Most recently in October, the actor used an N-word on-set when questioning dialog in a scene, then “immediately” apologized to the cast.
The pickup also comes ahead of Community’s syndicated debut in the fall on Comedy Central, with repeats potentially helping to lift the series the way TBS’ encores have helped push CBS’ The Big Bang Theory to new heights in its sixth season.
Despite being initially left off the network’s midseason lineup for the second time, the series received a vote of confidence from NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt earlier this year when he touted that the community college comedy would have more heart under new showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port. The duo took over from series creator Dan Harmon this season, with some critics of the Sony Pictures Television vehicle giving season four mixed results, some noting Community had lost the edge it had under Harmon.
For NBC’s part, the Community news as the network reinvents its comedy brand, with the community college series joining Parks and Recreation as its lone returning half-hours for 2013-14. All of its freshman comedies — save for Ryan Murphy’s semi-autobiographical entry The New Normal and summer effort Save Me — have failed to earn second seasons, though Save Me is not expected to return. NBC on Friday dropped Matthew Perry’s Go On, which was considered the rookie most likely to continue.
Meanwhile, NBC continues to add new comedies including The Michael J. Fox Show, Sean Saves the World, Undateable and The Family Guide, which just lost co-star Parker Posey.
Irene Neuwirth has cultivated a certain breed of bohemian luxe with her eponymous fine-jewelry line. But the L.A.-based designer, who’s up for the 2013 Swarovski/CFDA Accessories Award, wanted to bring out her collection’s more playful side. And with This is It—a quirky fashion film by Poppy De Villeneuve and Alex Braverman—she does just that. “I think sometimes my brand can be a bit serious—the jewelry is a serious acquisition, and the price point isn’t approachable for everyone. So I wanted to do something that had a fun, youthful feel, something that would speak to my friends and our clients.”
Set in an old-school roller rink in New Jersey, the film, which debuts exclusively below, definitely evokes some childhood nostalgia. And, as far as “fun” goes, the short’s star —Mad Men and Community actress Alison Brie —looks like she’s having quite a bit of it while gliding around in Neuwirth’s vibrant new wares. “I feel like she’s perfect because she gorgeous and she has an incredible sense of humor, these big bright eyes, and a really fresh smile,” said Neuwirth of her leading lady, who was styled by Jeananne Williams. The pair met through Neuwirth’s boyfriend, Phil Lord —Brie has a role in his upcoming film, The Lego Movie.
The supporting cast is nothing to scoff at, either. Members of the electro-pop trio Au Revoir Simone make an appearance (they’re also responsible for the music). And Brie’s on-screen love interest is none other than the lead singer of We Are Scientists, Keith Murray. “He was like a pro roller skater, by the way,” said Neuwirth. The designer makes a cameo, too, but she insists that her skating skills are a little shaky. “I had every birthday at a roller-skating rink when I was a kid. But until this film, I hadn’t been on roller skates for twenty years,” she said. “I’m the biggest klutz. But I was able to stay up. And it was so much fun.”
