Also starring in the ensemble comedy are Chevy Chase, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudy, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, recent Oscar winner Jim Rash and Ken Jeong.

Community is a Krasnoff Foster Entertainment, Harmonious Claptrap, Russo Brothers, Universal Media Studios production, in association with Sony Pictures Television. Russ Krasnoff, Dan Harmon, Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, Garrett Donovan, Neil Goldman and Gary Foster serve as executive producers.
