Dan Harmon, Creator of NBC's 'Community,' Lands Blind Script Deal at CBS Deadline
CBS has signed "Community" creator Dan Harmon to a blind script deal for a multicamera comedy project to be produced by CBS TV Studios, reports Deadline.com.
It's the second recent TV deal for Harmon, who was ousted earlier this year as showrunner of the acclaimed NBC sticom "Community." As previously reported, Harmon signed a deal with Fox for a new comedy project, also a multicamera comedy.
"The deals with CBS and Fox signal a change in direction for the writer-producer after creating/co-creating two consecutive single-camera comedies that have developed cult followings but have been branded as having narrow appeal: Comedy Central’s 'Sarah Silverman Program' and NBC’s 'Community,'" the story notes.
