Alison Brie reminisces about the beloved sitcom "Community" on NBC.
When rewatching 'Community' when the Dan Harmon-created series was on Netflix during the COVID-19 shutdown, the writer and star shared that she rewatched it from 2009 to 2014. NBC's 'Community' ran from 2009 to 2014, with its final season airing in 2015 on Yahoo! Screen.
Brie said during the "We Might Be Drunk" podcast. "I recently rewatched some of it because I love to watch my own work." No! It went up on Netflix during COVID, and I just rewatched a bunch of it, and I loved it."
Brie added, "It's very edgy." I believe a lot of the writing was equating to a network comedy about, like, putting in some great jabs.
The actress of "Spin Me Round" talks about her "dream" age of appearing alongside the Must-See TV NBC comedy lineup at the time.
“We were in that block.” Brie said. “That was the dream three years or whatever length that block was going. It was like, 'Wow, this is amazing.'
Brie will reprise her "Community" role with co-stars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong for a film adaptation of the series, living out the fan-led #SixSeasonsandaMovie campaign. In the first September 2022 film's cast, producer Harmon noted that Chase might not be "legal" to return amid a series of toxic workplace allegations.
Brie recently had a mini "Community" reunion with Pudi for her rom-com "Somebody I Used to Know," which is available to stream on Prime Video starting February 10.
Brie said she watches "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Sex and the City" on HBO Max, as well as with "edgy" humor and commentary.
Brie said she's a big fan of 'Sex and the City.' The movies went awry. I'm down for the second season, but it's not quite the same. What I find fascinating about it is that every monologue would have the cringiest sentence that doesn't update well and it would be followed by a truly prescient statement.'
