NBC's Thursday line-up adopts a Halloween theme.
Halloween is just days away and NBC's Thursday lineup is in the spirit.
It starts tonight with a Halloween special, "Scared Shrekless," featuring the characters from the Shrek movie series.
Afterward, NBC's three comedy regulars will also have a Halloween theme.
On "Community", rancid meat turns students into the walking dead and they take over Greendale Community College.
"Which is totally realistic and has happened before, in a number of different community colleges before, so it's almost like a documentary," said Actor Joel McHale.
It's also like dejavu for one cast member.
"We've combined a zombie, horror movie with a Halloween party, which resembles my childhood now, so this is bringing back lots of memories," said Actress Gillian Jacobs.
On "The Office" they're also in the Halloween spirit with a costume contest with money at stake.
"People go all out...lead some mundane lives...want to spice it up..and they do," said Actresses Angela Kinsey and Ellie Kemper.
It's an introduction to Halloween for the gang on "Outsourced", but Todd Dempsey forgot to explain that to his call center employees.
"He's still trying to bring America to the call center," said Actor Ben Rappaport.
And that leads to a Bollywood Halloween party.
