chevy chase got a job

The fine folks at TvSqaud were nice enough to let me steal some information from them this morning, news that made me happy.  Chevy Chase (remember?) might have an NBC sitcom.  The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Chase is coming back to TV, on an NBC sitcom called Community starring The Soup’s Joel McHale (see clip below). They report that the show will feature McHale as a lawyer who goes back to college because his degree has been found invalid, and that Chase will play a fellow student and multiple divorcee. The Reporter calls the role a “potential full-time primetime series gig.”

Oh JTT, you just couldn’t let him win.

I like Chase most of the time and The Soup is one of the best shows on TV, it’s the internet on TV more or less with all that clippage and what not.  Who knows what Community will look like, but I’m hoping Chase can sustain it, he deserves a break.
