Community: The Complete First Season

First Season of the Hit Comedy Available on DVD September 21st, loaded with Bonus Features and an Exclusive Comic Book

CULVER CITY, CALIF. (July 22, 2010) – The freshman year of Community, the break-out comedy of last season, debuts on DVD September 21st from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Emmy® winning writer Dan Harmon (TV’s “The Sarah Silverman Program”) and Emmy® winning directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo (TV’s “Arrested Development”) comprise the creative team of Community, the smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. At the group’s center is Joel McHale (TV’s “The Soup”, The Informant) and starring with him is Ken Jeong (The Hangover) and comedy legend Emmy® winner Chevy Chase (TV’s "Saturday Night Live"). The talented ensemble cast includes rising stars Gillian Jacobs (TV’s "The Book of Daniel"), Danny Pudi (TV’s "Greek"), Yvette Nicole Brown (TV’s "Rules of Engagement"), Alison Brie (TV’s "Mad Men"), and Donald Glover (TV’s "30 Rock").

The Community: The Complete First Season DVD will feature an exclusive comic book called KICKPUNCHER, a 12-page, full-color collectible illustrated by famed muralist and comic book artist Jim Mahfood, which follows the adventures of KICKPUNCHER, a crime-fighting superhero created from the mind of Troy Barnes.  This first edition comic includes a bonus pull-out collector’s poster of “ANNIE and BRITTA UNLEASHED!”

The DVD set will feature all 25 episodes of Community: The Complete First Season, including the highly talked-about “Modern Warfare” paintball episode.  This first season is packed with special features, including hilarious cast and crew commentaries on every episode, outtakes on each disc, extended cuts on two fan-favorite episodes and multiple featurettes including one where Dan Harmon, creator of the show, sits each cast member down and evaluates their performances throughout the first season!   A-List guest stars on the season include Katharine McPhee and a cameo by Owen Wilson.

Community: The Complete First Season will be available in a four-disc DVD set for $39.95 SRP.


Smooth talking ex-lawyer Jeff Winger has got a lot to learn, and he’s come to Greendale Community College to avoid every bit of it. Unfortunately for Jeff, he’s not the only misfit to enroll here, and people in need have an odd way of finding each other. First, his fake study group becomes a real study group. Then, over the course of a strange year that goes from Mexican Halloween to the final “Tranny Dance,” and includes bad trips, great debates, drunk dials, food fights, epic paintball battles and sinister chicken finger conspiracies — the group becomes a family, something Jeff never wanted, but clearly needs.
