Ken Jeong will star in and produce a medical comedy for NBC, Deadline reports.

Dr. Ken will draw from Jeong’s life as a licensed physician before he entered showbusiness full-time in 2007.

New season, new sexy stars. See our fall TV crushes! 

The multi-camera comedy will be written by Jared Stern who will executive-produce along with John Davis, John Fox and Jeong.

Jeong is a regular on Community‘s upcoming fifth season. If the cult comedy is renewed, it’s likely Jeong will still be able to continue to appear as his character Chang in a potential Season 6. “I will never leave Community. I will always Chang the world,” the actor wrote on his Facebook page Friday night.
