They have more flexibility on Yahoo!...
Joel McHale spoke with THR about the upcoming season of Community on Yahoo! Screen. The show, as previously reported, was given a revival via Yahoo! after NBC cancelled it in May. Check out the highlights:
On the new season: "I'm so excited because now there will be no commercial breaks, the restraints I'm assuming will be way less and it's like this just playground now for [show creator] Dan [Harmon]. Unencumbered Dan Harmon is very exciting."
On Yahoo! being an unproven content provider: "I think Community fans have proven that they will find the show."
On the rest of the cast's mindset: "I know the cast is excited because it's a whole new frontier, and we wont be up against Big Bang Theory, and we know Yahoo's really excited to get us out there, and that is incredibly helpful when the people who are paying for you to make it are excited about it."
On a possible movie: "People are already talking about [the possibility]."
On whether he is angry at NBC for cancelling the show: "It wouldn't be Community if there wasn't some sort of big drama at the end of every year."
