The “Community” and “Arrested Development” creators have a project in the works, reveals Harmon
“Community” creator Dan Harmon just revealed that he and “Arrested Development” creator Mitch Hurwitz are doing a show (or other project) together. But, Harmon was cagey about sharing details on the project.
“I don’t want to talk about it,” he told Rolling Stone while promoting the SXSW premiere of “Harmontown,” Neil Berkeley’s documentary about the writer-producer’s live podcast show of the same name and the period between his firing and later re-hiring at the NBC Comedy.
He did say that it “would embrace the emerging mediascape, and use us both in a way that we weren’t compromising each other, but are still collaborating, and giving the audience a lot to digest. That’s all I’ll say.”
Hurwitz guest-starred on last week’s episode of “Community,” which was apparently part of Harmon’s grand plan to insert himself into the fellow showrunner’s life.
“I invited him to come down on the show and then I parlayed that into what I really want from him,” he said, “which is friendship, hanging out, talking about how dumb people are when they tell you what to do!”
He would later ensnare Hurwitz into a master plan to co-write something: “He and I have talked about doing a project together, so that every time I see him, I’m like, ‘We weren’t just drunk, we’re really gonna do that?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah.'”
It remains to be seen what comes of the partnership. In the meantime, Harmon has both “Community” and Adult Swim’s “Rick & Morty” keeping him from hiding in Hurwitz’s bushes.
