By Jennifer • Comments Off on The “Community” Movie is Happening At PeacockCommunity, Movies, News

Six seasons and a movie is finally real after NBCUniversal’s Peacock ordered a feature film closure for Community.

It’s a long time coming for the fan-favorite series, which ran for more than 100 episodes between 2009 and 2015.

The streaming service has ordered Community: The Movie from creator Dan Harmon. It will feature original series stars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong. The NBCU digital platform won the rights in a competitive situation.

It comes a month after Harmon gave his most concrete answer to the question about when the movie is coming, revealing that it was a “matter of when.” It seems when is now.

Community, which was set in a community college in Colorado, originally launched on NBC, airing alongside series such as The Office, 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation. It ran for five seasons on the linear network before moving to Yahoo! Screen for its final season – one of the first shows to move to a digital platform after a linear launch.

McHale returns as Jeff Winger, Jacobs plays Britta Perry, Pudi is Abed Nadir, Brie as Annie Edison, Rash as Craig Pelton, and Jeong as Ben Chang.

There’s no sign of Chevy Chase, who starred in the first four seasons but left after frequent conflicts with Harmon following a Season 5 cameo, Donald Glover, who starred in the first five seasons, and Yvette Nicole Brown, who also starred in the first five seasons, are also not returning, but that’s not a surprise given their exits.

Harmon and Andrew Guest will write and exec produce while McHale, Russ Krasnoff and Gary Foster will executive produce the movie, which comes from Sony Pictures Television and Universal Television.

Peacock is also acquiring the full series library on a non-exclusive basis.

“‘Six seasons and a movie’ started out as a cheeky line from Community’s early seasons and quickly ignited a passionate fan movement for this iconic, hilarious and cool NBC comedy,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We’re incredibly grateful that 15 years later, we are able to deliver fans this promised movie and can’t wait to get to work with Dan Harmon, Andrew Guest, Joel McHale, Sony and our partners at UTV to continue this epic comedy for Peacock audiences.”

“Community was light years ahead of its time when it premiered on NBC in 2009 and we are thrilled to once again visit the brilliant minds of Dan Harmon, Andrew Guest and this impeccable cast. We are grateful to Peacock, our partners at UTV and to all the zealous fans who have cherished this iconic show,” said Jason Clodfelter, Co-President, Sony Pictures Television Studios.

“This franchise is the very definition of community,” added Erin Underhill, President, Universal Television. “We’re excited to bring the band back together and continue the journey of these beloved characters.”

Alison Brie is featured on “The Last Laugh” podcast.

Alison Brie had one of the luckiest big breaks in the history of television. Before the age of 30, she managed to simultaneously co-star on TV’s most celebrated drama (Mad Men) and most obsessed-over comedy (Community). In the seven years since those two shows ended their iconic runs, she has risen to the top of the call sheet in her beloved Netflix series GLOW, and gone toe to toe with both comedy stars like Will Ferrell and acting legends like Meryl Streep on the big screen.

In this week’s episode of The Last Laugh podcast, Brie talks about making the move to indie film screenwriting with Netflix’s Horse Girl and now her Italy-set comedy Spin Me Round. She also addresses whether fans can expect to see Chevy Chase in the eventual Community movie, explains why she felt the need to apologize for her voice work on Bojack Horseman, and a lot more.

By Jennifer • Comments Off on Alison Brie Interview on “UnWrapped” PodcastInterviews

On some films, “producer” may be a vanity title added next to an actor’s name during the credits to boost their ego, rather than a hard-earned badge of honor. But more and more actors – like Lili Reinhart and Alison Brie – are working to change that, earning that credit by taking a step behind the camera and having a say in almost every decision on their films – from the art, to the props, to the music and to casting.

During this episode of WrapWomen’s “UnWrapped” Podcast, “Look Both Ways” star and executive producer Lili Reinhart, along with “Spin Me Round” actress, co-writer and producer Alison Brie take us behind the scenes of their recent projects and what they learned in taking on various roles during production.

By Jennifer • Comments Off on Alison Brie On Co-Writing Genre Shifting ‘Spin Me Round’ And Creating the Roles She Wants to PlayInterviews

A lot has changed for Alison Brie since being cast as Trudy Campbell on Mad Men in 2007. Over the years, the California-born actress has proved that she can’t be pigeonholed, from becoming an integral part of the ensemble on Community to embodying supporting characters in films like Scream 4 and The Five-Year Engagement. In 2016, she accepted a bit part in Joshy, a comedic drama from writer/director Jeff Baena. That project was transformative for Brie, who has since collaborated with Baena on 2017’s The Little Hours, 2020’s Horse Girl and now on Spin Me Round. The latter two have marked Brie’s debut as co-writer, an aspect of her career that has become more and more important in recent years.

Spin Me Round, out now, stars Brie as Amber, the manager of an Italian chain restaurant who earns an all-expenses trip to a company’s headquarters in Italy. What begins as a whimsical rom-com, seemingly about an ordinary woman having extraordinary experiences in a foreign country, quickly becomes something else. After Amber is whisked off on a yacht by the chain’s handsome owner, she uncover mysterious circumstances that she fears might be kidnapping, or worse. The movie slips between genres effortlessly, veering from bubbly rom-com to terrifying thriller. Brie stars alongside Alessandro Nivola, Molly Shannon, Tim Heidecker, Debby Ryan and Aubrey Plaza (who is also Baena’s wife). Much of the cast had previously acted together on the director’s previous work, making the 22-day shoot in Italy feel like a reunion.

Observer spoke with Brie about collaborating with Baena, why she wants to write her own roles and what’s next for her career.

By Jennifer • Comments Off on Alison Brie Talks Restaurant Work, Pasta, and Her Favorite Local Dinner SpotsInterviews

Longtime actor and Los Angeles native Alison Brie had to learn a lot about the restaurant industry for her new film Spin Me Round — well, sort of. The rom-com turned dramedy, set in the Tuscan hillsides, follows Brie as an employee at a lowly chain Italian restaurant named Tuscan Grove who earns the opportunity to head to Italy on a work trip meant to more deeply immerse her in the culture of the restaurant and the flavors of the region. The whole thing has deep Olive Garden Culinary Institute vibes, but with more danger, more jokes, and a bungled love triangle.

“I think the restaurant industry is too crazy,” says Brie when asked about whether or not she’d ever consider owning her own place some day, as many other celebrities have done. “Silent investor? Maybe. I just think that I derive so much joy from food and from being at restaurants, that I’d hate to make it my job.”

Eater spoke with Brie on the eve of her new film’s debut (watch the trailer below), touching on her favorite Italian restaurants in LA, restaurant jobs she’s had, and where the South Pasadena local used to eat as a teenager.

By Jennifer • Comments Off on Alison Brie Tells Molly Shannon About Baby Food and Sauna BlanketsInterviews

This summer, Alison Brie stars in Spin Me Round, a twisted, alfredo sauce-soaked rom-com she co-wrote with her friend and frequent collaborator, Jeff Baena. The film follows Brie as Amber, a manager at a fictional restaurant chain who flies out to Italy for a corporate retreat that goes disastrously, hilariously wrong. For their Eat, Pray, Love meets Taken send up, Brie and Baena tapped cast members from their nunsploitation flick The Little Hours, including Molly Shannon, who recently called up her co-star for a steamy chat about saunas, sad songs, and her real-life romance with husband Dave Franco.

ALISON BRIE: Hi Molly!

MOLLY SHANNON: You look so pretty!

BRIE: Thank you, so do you!

SHANNON: God, and your house looks so gorgeous too. So let me start by asking you—because I think of you as a very disciplined actress, very prepared—did you have breakfast today?

BRIE: [Laughs] I did. I have a little bit of applesauce before I work out. I literally had one of those pouches for babies. I squeezed it into my mouth, then I did a little workout. Did you have breakfast this morning?

SHANNON: I did. Well, I just went swimming before our interview.

BRIE: You love to swim.

SHANNON: I love to swim, and I listen to books on tape. I have waterproof headphones, so I read and swim.

BRIE: That’s cool.

SHANNON: But going to the movie, it was so fun shooting with you in Italy.

BRIE: It’s funny how different our trip was from the characters’ trips. It’s like we were all having the trip that the characters want to be having. And eating delicious food all the time.

SHANNON: It was so special. But what I want to ask you is, so you’ve collaborated now with Jeff Baena on so many movies now. Horse Girl, Spin Me Round, The Little Hours, and now writing, for the second time, a full screenplay. What is the difference between writing and acting for you?
