The to-be-determined project will be written and executive-produced by Harmon, and produced by CBS Television Studios.

 While details on the project are scant, it is notable that it will be a multi-camera project, a stark departure for Harmon, who is known for one-camera projects such as "Community."

Harmon, who served as showrunner on "Community," got the ax from the show after it ended its third season. He will be replaced by new showrunners David Gurascio and Nick Port for the series' fourth season. The show will air Friday nights at 8:30 when it returns for its 13-episode fourth season in the fall.
