You can’t keep a genius/asshole down. Dan Harmon has brushed the NBC brush-off off and has moved on to developing a multi-camera sitcom pilot for Fox according to TV Guide. Though his bosses at Sony saw fit not to renew his Community contract, Harmon is now free to bring something else crazy and wonderful into the world.
This is currently just a pilot order but it seems that Fox has commited themselves to becoming a home for cool comedy. New Girl was a huge hit and will soon have The Mindy Project and Ben and Kate airing in the same comedy block. Whatever Harmon is cooking up would be right at home with that bunch. Let’s hope this becomes a breakout hit instead of going the way of the 784 shows* Fox has canceled in the past fifteen years.
