Ken Jeong will star in and produce a medical comedy for NBC, Deadline reports.
Judging from Sunday's Comic-Con panel for the fifth season of Community, it will be the comedy's most bombastic.
Reinstated showrunner Dan Harmon arrived on stage with great fanfare in a homemade Iron Man costume, which had to be removed with the help of cast members Jim Rash and Danny Pudi. Riffing on Iron Man alter ego Tony Stark's penchant for arrogant oration, Harmon launched into a speech that would have humbled the fictional billionaire playboy inventor. Here are highlights of the speech, which also addressed his absence from the show last year and his triumphant return:
What will Abed do?!
Donald Glover, who plays Abed's BFF Troy Barnes on Community, will not be returning full-time for the comedy's upcoming fifth season, Vulture reports.
According to the site, Glover's reps have made a...
Ken Jeong on Sullivan & Sons
Community's Ken Jeong is on the big screen this summer in The Hangover Part III, and now he's heading to TBS for another hangover on the bar-set comedy, Sullivan & Son.
As a twentysomething liberal arts grad, it's pretty much a pre-requisite to love post-modernism. The more meta something is, the better. So needless to say, I've been a huge fan of Community since the beginning (my massive crush on Donald Glover might have helped a little too). But then somewhere in the middle of Season 3, I felt my passion waning. When I first tried to share my concerns, fellow fans shunned me, acting as though I wasn't smart or hip enough to get it.
Then Dan Harmon was fired.

It feels as though Oct. 19 was just yesterday. Could this really be the end?
Thursday's Community will wrap up the fourth season and possibly the series, depending on whether or not NBC decides to give the cult comedy one last shot. We chatted with showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port to get the scoop on what might be our final trip to Greendale.
Community cast at Paley Festival
Six seasons and a movie. That's Community's rallying cry, hashtag and goal, but for now it's only a reality in Abed's Dreamatorium.
But even if the NBC comedy were to end after its current fourth season, star Yvette Nicole Brown isn't mourning. "Four years is great! We made it to syndication, we got to meet all of you guys," she told fans at Tuesday's Paley Festival honoring Community. "As an actor, it's hard to have friends -- who are more talented than you, more beautiful than you or whatever -- that aren't working ... We're in the gravy years of our careers and the gravy years of this show. So if we get to continue another year, it would be an awesome blessing... but remember that whatever happens in May ... we did it together and that's a great thing."
Vanilla Ice: Rapper, reality show star and ... YouTube star? Maybe someday soon!
The singer, born Rob Van Winkle, performed with some of YouTube's biggest musical stars at the Hollywood Palladium Sunday night for the 3rd Annual Streamy Awards, which celebrates the best of online programming. The collaboration was an anxious affair though because he had only met crooner Chester See, musician Mike Tompkins and Epic Rap Battles of History's Nice Peter the night before. "We had no game plan but put everything together last night. It was so sloppy, I can't even tell you," Van Winkle told TVGuide.com....
