After being removed by NBC from the series he created, former Community showrunner Dan Harmon has not one, but three new projects in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Harmon is in negotiations to create a series for Fox to create a series for the network.
Harmon’s also executive producing a stop-motion movie called Anomalisa written and directed by Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) through Kickstarter, and an animated series pilot at Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Called Rick and Morty, the cartoon follows the adventures of a genius grandfather and his dolt of a grandson. Anomalisa has already surpassed its crowd-sourced fundraising goal of $200,000.
In a recent interview on G4’s Attack of the Show, Harmon addressed some of the issues he NBC might have had with him. “If 20 people call you a horse’s ass, you buy a saddle,” he said. “I feel like I am a good person and a professional, very able leader of men. I also feel like I’m 25. That slowly changed without me realizing it. Maybe I am just a jerk. To people who work above me, I am a liability that isn’t worth the benefit. A low-rated show that’s not generating much revenue.”
