Community's Joel McHale to Star in CBS Comedy Pilot The Great Indoors

Joel McHale in The Great Indoors

Community fans still in denial about the show’s cancellation may want to skip this story.

Former Greendale Gang member Joel McHale has been cast as the lead in The Great Indoors, CBS’ workplace comedy pilot from Tosh.0 co-creator Mike Gibbons.

The multi-cam sitcom finds McHale playing the longtime star reporter for The Great Outdoors magazine who has climbed mountains, confronted bears, and just generally led a life of excitement and adventure. But when he’s sidelined by an injury, he’s forced to take a desk job in the publication’s digital and social media department, surrounded by a team of millennials who view him as an exotic and ancient oddity from another place and time.

McHale post-Community credits include guest stints in Fox’s X-Files revival and ABC’s Dr. Ken (opposite Community cohort Ken Jeong).
