Dan Harmon's Exit from 'Community' ()
Frequent collaborators Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab addressed some of the talk around Harmon's firing off of NBC's Community. After creating and running that show for three seasons, the studio that owns and produces it fired him. Since then there have been rumors about how hard he is to work with and work for. But despite that, Harmon reports he's had many new offers. In fact, he's recently signed deals to write pilots for both Fox and CBS. He's also producing a stop-motion film, Anomalisa, written by Charlie Kaufman, whose kickstarter campaign has recently reached its goal.
