Community’s Donald Glover Developing New NBC Comedy – Is He Leaving Greendale?
In a move that could shake Troy and Abed’s pillow fort to its very foundation, Community’s Donald Glover is developing a new show for NBC.
The actor, who plays Troy on the NBC sitcom, and Emmy-winning 30 Rock co-executive producer Matt Hubbard are working on a potential starring vehicle for Glover, TVGuide.com reports. (The pair go back to the days when Glover was a 30 Rock scribe.)
The network is apparently so enamored of the concept – which would be vaguely based on Glover’s life – that it’s very close to locking down a put pilot commitment with a large kill fee.
Thinking that Community without Troy is like Inspector Spacetime without Constable Reggie? Don’t worry, Abed fans. Glover remains committed to his current show’s Season 4, which debuts Friday, Oct. 19 at 8:30/7:30c on NBC.
