Chazelle’s Whiplash, about an aspiring jazz drummer and his sadistic instructor, is his second feature film and is adapted from a short film of the same name that he also wrote and directed. The short won the jury award for short films at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Whiplash was nominated for four other awards, including best picture.

After losing its home on NBC last year, it was feared by many that cult comedy show Community was dead. But after being saved by Yahoo, the show’s sixth season is all set to air this March.
To announce the screening dates, Yahoo have gathered all of Greendale’s finest for a teaser trailer, which you can view below. In typical Community fashion, it plays with television tropes and pokes fun at the shows move to Yahoo.
With Dan Harmon back after returning for season five, the show reunites series regulars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong, as well as some new blood including Paget Brewster (Friends), Martin Mull (Dads) and Lesley Ann Warren (Clue). Former cast regular Yvette Nicole Brown departed the show before the new season began filming, as did Danny Glover, Jonathan Banks and Chevy Chase during season five. »

Community will arrive on Yahoo on the 17th of March for its sixth season (we're still waiting on that movie)...
"Keanu Reeves, Matthew McConaughey, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, dinosaurs, live unicorns, gargoyles and everything". According to Joel McHale in this non-promotional promo video for Community's sixth season, those are the reasons to tune in for the return of Greendale's finest.
Except, it's not quite tuning-in, as the season will arrive on Yahoo Screen's streaming service instead of TV. On the 17th of March 2015. Which is information that the cast and creators of Community neither want or need you to know. Ach, it's probably best if you just watch the video.
Paget Brewster and Keith David join McHale, Gillian Taylor, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash in Community season six, which bids adieu to another of the original Spanish study group roster, Yvette Nicole Brown.
The cast and creators of “Community” celebrated their show’s resurrection by Yahoo at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena on Tuesday.
The sixth season of the cult favorite comedy will premiere on March 17, with two episodes. New episodes will debut on following Tuesdays.
Original cast members Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Ken Jeong, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie and Jim Rash are all slated to return, to be joined by new cast members Paget Brewster (as a “problem-solver”) and Keith David (as a computer programmer).
Series creator Dan Harmon said the deal with Yahoo came down to “literally hours from our perspective.”
The cast had mourned the show after NBC’s cancellation (“We had cheated death so many times,” said Gillian Jacobs), but Sony execs were still shopping the show to other outlets. Hulu was a contender to pick up the show, says Harmon, “but I don’t know what happened there, »

The dream of Six Seasons and a Movie is one step closer to fruition, thanks to Yahoo rescuing "Community" from cancellation, for a sixth season to debut sometime this year. Beyond knowing which castmembers won't be a part of the new season — Yvette Nicole Brown left for personal reasons, Jonathan Banks is now on "Better Call Saul," and of course Donald Glover and Chevy Chase have been gone a while, leaving only Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Oscar Winner Jim Rash — we don't have a whole lot of detail about the new season, including when it might debut on Yahoo Screen, whether Yahoo will try a Netflix all-at-once approach or release the episodes weekly, etc. Fortunately, we have a "Community" panel this morning at press tour, featuring Dan Harmon, producer Chris McKenna, and stars McHale, Jacobs and Jeong, which will hopefully provide some answers. »

Yahoo Screen will premiere two new episodes that day followed by new episodes every Tuesday. Production on the series began in November with thirteen episodes in the works.

Community has long been one of the more creative – but also ratings and awareness-challenged – sitcoms to come from the American network system in years. And it’s been even harder to come by in this country, changing networks and sometimes disappearing altogether. It should be a little easier to find, as the sixth season will debut online via Yahoo screen on March 17.The video above features the main cast, now limited to Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong plus one of this year’s guest stars, Paget Brewster, announcing the new series in typically comic style. The news was also delivered at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, with creator Dan Harmon admitting that he’s happy with the show's new home. "The corset loosens a little bit," he told reporters. "There's a little, tiny bit more Britishness to the comedy. It's a little freer. »
