A pilot script for a show called Love has been written by Judd Apatow, Paul Rust (Super Fun Night, and Lesley Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, with an eye on Rust and Community's Gillian Jacobs co-starring. Apatow may direct the show, and Brent Forrester (The Simpsons, The Office, Undeclared) may be the showrunner.

As for what the show would be about: A person familiar with the pilot script describes Love as a character-based comedy revolving around relationships, romantic and otherwise, with one (very messed-up) couple in particular at the center. And, because this is Judd Apatow, [...]

Hulu May Order a Sixth Season of 'Community'

The dream of six seasons and a movie may not be dead after all: Deadline is reporting that Hulu is in talks with Sony to produce a sixth season of the recently canceled Community. Despite Dan Harmon initially being lukewarm on the idea of continuing the show somewhere else once NBC gave it the axe, he's apparently on board if Hulu does end up ordering the show.

When its first season was released on DVD, it became the best selling television DVD of all time. At the end of its 25th season, which starts this Sunday on Fox, it will have produced more than 550 episodes.

But look for episodes of The Simpsons online and you’ll come up short. Only the most recent five episodes are available on [...]
