Exciting news for Community fans! Alison will guest star as herself on Ken Jeong’s show, Dr. Ken. Not exactly a Community reunion, however, it is always great having the cast reunite.
The Community reunion on the season finale of ABC’s Dr. Ken is growing.
Alison Brie is the latest Community alum set to guest star on the season finale, joining Dr. Ken star and former Community regular Ken Jeong and Community creator Dan Harmon.
In Dr. Ken’s Season 2 finale titled “Ken’s Big Audition,” Brie will guest star as herself, an actress just cast as a series regular on Harmon’s new sitcom. Alison reads with Ken (Jeong) during his audition, and is soon uncomfortable with Ken’s bold acting choices. As previously announced, Harmon plays himself, the creator of a new TV comedy set at a community college.
Brie joins a long list of Jeong’s Community co-stars that have appeared on Dr. Ken including Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Jim Rash, Gillian Jacobs & Yvette Nicole Brown. Jonathan Banks’ is also appearing in this week’s episode airing on Friday.
The Dr. Ken season finale is slated to air Friday, March 31.
Brie is repped by WME & Rise Management.
Today, December 29th, Alison is celebrating her birthday. I’d like to wish a Happy Birthday to Alison! And to have a wonderful day!

Alison Brie to Star in Netflix Wrestling Comedy ‘GLOW’ From Jenji Kohan
The Netflix series marks the in-demand actress’ latest TV role since ‘Community’ and ‘BoJack Horseman.’
Alison Brie is hopping into Netflix’s wrestling ring.
The Community and BoJack Horseman favorite has booked the starring role in the streaming giant’s Jenji Kohan comedy GLOW, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
GLOW — aka Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling — is inspired by the real story of the 1980s female wrestling league. The 10-episode comedy is set in Los Angeles and will showcase big hair and body slams and tell the fictionalized story of an out-of-work actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers. The comedy is based on the professional women’s wrestling syndicated TV series that existed in the ’80s. The comedy was picked up to series in May.
Brie will star as Ruth, a struggling actress whose dreams of fame take a surprising turn when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling.
GLOW was co-created by Liz Flahive (Homeland) and Carly Mensch (Orange Is the New Black), who serve as showrunners on the series that also counts OITNB’s Kohan and Tara Herrmann as executive producers.
GLOW expands Brie’s relationship with Netflix, where she voices multiple characters on the critical-favorite animated comedy BoJack Horseman. The show marks her latest series-regular acting gig following NBC/Yahoo’s Community and comes after a pilot season that saw Brie turn down multiple offers — both comedy and drama — at seemingly every broadcast network. The busy actress, who counts Mad Men among her credits, also exec produces TV Land comedy series Teachers, which was renewed for a second season.
On the big screen, Brie was last seen in How to be Single, opposite Leslie Mann and Rebel Wilson. She will next appear in The Masterpiece, opposite James Franco, and The Headhunters Calling, the latter of which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Brie is repped by WME, Rise Management and Sloane Offer.
