Who is Dan Harmon? Well, he’s a writer and the host of the popular podcast, Harmontown, but you probably know him from being fired from Community (the show he created). After the firing mess, Harmon took his live show/podcast on tour around the country and filmed it for a documentary. Sarah Silverman, Joel McHale, Ken Jeong, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, John Oliver and more appear in the trailer for Harmontown that was released this week. Harmontown hits theaters and VOD on October 3rd.
We have ourselves a while until the Yahoo-revived 6th season of Community is ready to
air stream. However Yahoo releases a teaser clip for the new season that sets the stage for some lofty plans for season 6 which basically includes rebuilding it like the 6 Million Dollar Man.
We’re still months away from the revived season 6 of Community airing on Yahoo. But it’s always fun to see the blooper reel from the previous season. Mainly because it gives off the vibe that being on set for that show is completely fun. It also will reaffirm any love you have toward Alison Brie a bit more (if that’s possible) because she’s easily the most fun part minus Dany Pudi (Abed) taking a stab at some Nic Cage impressions. The language is NSFW, that is unless it’s okay to hear someone yell about lacerated anuses and shout f*ck 32 times.
#sixseasonsandamovie is still alive and well. Well, ‘cept for that movie part (yet).
In what can only be described as a totally 11th hour resurrection for a show that’s been DOA more than we can count, Community – which was cancelled by NBC just a few weeks ago – will live. Yahoo Screen has just ordered a 13 episode 6th season of the show.
In a joint press release between Sony and Yahoo, a lot more references to six seasons and a movie and inside jokes from the first 5 episodes were made. Read More
The show that could, Community just never seems to be one to lie down and die a quiet death. The dream of #sixseasonsandamovie seems to still have a glimmer of hope. Reports are that Hulu is in early talks with Sony to produce a sixth season of the show, which was cancelled by NBC a few weeks back.
While Netflix was a name instantly tossed out as a possible survivor of the show when the cancellation news came down, that was never a possibility because of a previously-established streaming deal between Sony and Hulu.
Showrunner Dan Harmon was initially lukewarm to the idea of a revival but now appears on board if it were to happen. This also keeps the fire burning for the potential return of Donald Glover to the show for season six.
After arguably devastating news on Friday afternoon that Community had been officially cancelled, creator/showrunner Dan Harmon was in Portland recording an episode of his Harmontown podcast at Bridgetown Comedy Festvial. We can only assume the news dropped when it did to make his show the hottest ticket in town and we were there to get the news first hand.
During the taping, Jeff Davis accused Dan of being drunk since breakfast. Dan quickly explained, “I was hungover, we all know what happened yesterday.” They spent an obscene amount of time talking stripclubs and bar fights before Jeff brought up the obvious, “Your show got cancelled yesterday!”
Jeff told the story of being picked up from the airport. Once in the car, the driver mentioned having to pick up Dan later in the day and asked if he knew his show got cancelled. Shocked, Jeff said, “I didn’t know that, when did that news drop?” The answer was, recently and there was a chance that Dan was in the air when that news blew up on Twitter. Not the case, he explained, “I was on my way to LAX and somebody from Sony called me.” Read More
Axed: NBC cancels “Community,” ABC says goodbye to “Super Fun Night,” “Suburgatory,” “The Neighbors,” and more
Collective shock around the world, while cult favorite sitcom Community has been flirting with danger for years, NBC finally says goodbye. According to TV Line, NBC canceled Community today after five seasons. While Community has struggled in the ratings, creator Dan Harmon‘s return this year was a sign of optimism. Unfortunately, with the popular Donald Glover leaving (alongside not-at-popular Chevy Chase) Community couldn’t escape the inevitable. But, hey, at least they went out in style.
Community fans shouldn’t completely abandon hope. There is a good chance the sitcom will follow in Arrested Development and Happy Endings‘ footsteps and get shopped to another network. While nothing’s been said yet, Dan Harmon has had plans for a Community movie. I don’t think this will the end of Jeff and the gang.
Over on ABC (in a less shocking twist) Suburgatory, Super Fun Night, and The Neighbors have all been axed. Suburgatory lasted three seasons, while The Neighbors struggled through two. Rebel Wilson led freshman show Super Fun Night doesn’t make the cut alongside fellow newbies Trophy Wife and Mixology. It’s getting brutal out there.
Update: Over at CBS they’ve pulled the plug on 3 of its freshman comedies The Crazy Ones, Friends With Better Lives, and the adaptation of the movie Bad Teacher.

There’s a whole lot of hype circling around HBO’s True Detective staring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. People can’t seem to get enough of the show with theories about what the King In Yellow metaphors mean, or trying to figure out out who the killer is. Enter the world of comedy to make fun of it. As the first season wraps this weekend, Community’s Joel McHale and Jim Rash dropped their own version of the new drama on McHale’s other show, The Soup. I could describe it to you but let’s be real, its only 2 minutes and it hilariously spoofs the “tone” of the Southern crime drama.
Here’s the trailer for Harmontown a documentary that’s set to premiere at SXSW next week. The documentary follows Dan Harmon, the creator of Community and his trek across the country as he takes his podcast of the same name on the road. It’s a bit reminiscent of Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop. A comedic mind getting antsy after losing a job he loved, so he decides to take the show on the road. This trailer features a lot of other funny people including Matt Braunger, Jack Black, Sarah Silverman, Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Steve Agee, Brandon Johnson, and John Oliver.
