The film about Harmon’s traveling podcast will be released in the fall
Everything is coming up aces for Dan Harmon.
The “Community” creator got his show back last year, just got a second life and sixth season at Greendale from Yahoo, and now, the documentary about his traveling podcast has been acquired by distributor The Orchard.
Directed by Neil Berkeley (“Beauty is Embarrassing”), the film traces Harmon’s shows throughout the country, with guest appearances by “Community” stars and top comedians like Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Sarah Silverman, and Jason Sudeikis.
“‘Harmontown’ is a fascinating glimpse into the mind of a man that would quote himself saying that a movie about him is fascinating,” Harmon said in a statement. “It’s more than a documentary. It’s your chance to figure out what’s wrong with me while cutting me in on the profit.”
The film, which debuted at SXSW, will hit a limited number of theaters in October, likely around the time that “Community” will make its return/debut on Yahoo, and will also be available digitally on demand.
