After an awkward audition with Alison Brie (guest starring as herself), Hollywood producer/writer Dan Harmon (guest starring as himself) makes Ken’s life-long dream come true by casting him in a new comedy series that takes place at a community college. Meanwhile, Pat is ready to declare his love for Damona, but an unexpected visit from his ex-wife, Tiffany (guest star Nia Vardalos), throws him off course; and Allison is less prepared for Molly to leave for Stanford than she’s letting on.
Phill Lewis directed the episode written by Jim Brandon & Brian Singleton. Dr. Ken Season 2 Episode 22 airs on March 31 at 8:30|7:30c on ABC.
