(CTN News) _ Greetings, students. Peacock, the streaming service owned by NBC Universal, has ordered a Community Movie feature film after a lengthy campaign.
According to a press release, Peacock won the rights to the Community Movie
from original series creator Dan Harmon in a “highly competitive situation” and will also stream the series on its streaming service.
The Community movie will be written and executive produced by Harmon and Andrew Guest, who wrote the show’s first two seasons and classic episodes like.
“Advanced Dungeons & Dragons” and “A Fistful of Paintballs.”
With Russ Krasnoff and Gary Foster, Joel McHale will also serve as an executive producer on the film.
The studio will be Sony Pictures Television and Universal Television.
At a Colorado community college, a study group had misadventures and exploits.
The film Peacock does not yet know whether longtime series regulars Donald Glover, who played Troy and left during the fifth season,
Yvette-Nicole Brown, who played Shirley, or Chevy Chase, who played Pierce and left during the fourth season and was killed off during the fifth season will return.
The #sixseasonsandamovie campaign started in 2014 near the end of Community Movie run on NBC.
In 2009, Community joined The Office, 30 Rock, and Parks & Recreation on NBC’s must-see comedy lineup.
The series Peacock won an Emmy in 2012 for outstanding individual achievement in animation.
For Coronavirus relief efforts, the Community cast reunited for a virtual table read in 2020.
Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content,
NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, says, “‘Six seasons and a movie’ started out as a cheeky line from Community’s early seasons and quickly ignited a passionate fan movement.”
“We’re excited to work with Dan Harmon, Andrew Guest, Joel McHale, Sony and our partners at UTV to continue this epic comedy.”
