NBC’s ‘Community’ Goes 8-Bit

community-150

The stars of NBC’s live-action comedy Community have been through their share of quirky adventures—including stop-motion and anime inspired toon ones—but according to The Hollywood Reporter, they’ll be entering an all new flat dimension as 8-bit videogame characters.

The episode titled “Digital Estate Planning,” set to air this Thursday at 8 p.m. on the network, puts the study group (Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Donald Glover, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie and Nicole Brown) into a pixel-licious adventure to help their pal Pierce (Chevy Chase) keep hold of his inheritance and stay in the one percent. Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito guest stars as Pierce’s late father’s second-in-command come to take the moolah.
