It was almost two years ago that NBC fired outspoken producer Dan Harmon from the cult comedy series he created Community and created a rather interesting storm of news around the show and Harmon that raged for over a year until he was reinstated at his job for the latest season.
Faced with some “free time” on his, Harmon decided to take his already rising-in-popularity podcast Harmontown on the road and that trip has been documented in the new documentary titled, appropriately Harmontown. Much like the podcast can be, the documentary looks like it will at least in part be a journey into Harmon’s darker side and the demons and insecurities that fuel his creativity. If it’s anything like the podcast, it should be an interesting trip.
Harmontown is set to premier at the SXSW festival this Saturday. There have been no announced distribution plans beyond this weekend, though I have no doubt that it will be more widely available at some point.
