In May, MTV picked up an as-yet untitled comedy pilot about a 22-year-old who finds an unlikely advice guru after accidentally rear-ending a celebrity’s car. Now the pilot has a star, and it’s ready to Chang—er, change—its name.

EW has confirmed that Ken Jeong (The HangoverCommunity) will star in said pilot, now known as Ken Jeong Made Me Do It. The script follows Andy, who catches his girlfriend cheating, accidentally damages Jeong’s fancy car, and then gets advice from the star on how to Chang change his life for the better. Jeong will play himself.

Andy St. Clair and Paul O’Toole will write the script. Marc Provissero will executive produce the project. And Jeong and his manager, Brett Carducci, are signed on to produce.

For worried Community fans, this casting doesn’t signify any big change at Greendale. MTV’s pilot will not prevent Jeong from returning to the newly renewed show and reprising his role as Señor Chang.
