“Community” showrunner Dan Harmon’s recent firing didn’t come as a complete surprise to everyone.
“Dan has been notoriously difficult with NBC,” Offerman adds. “And then he had that really public Chevy Chase feud.”
Harmon reportedly ridiculed Chase at the third-season wrap party, and then publicly played a furious, profanity-riddled message the veteran actor left on his voicemail after leaving the party.
“I think Dan is brilliant, but we all kind of hung our heads and thought, That’s no way for a boss to behave.”
David Guarascio and Moses Port are “Community’s” new bosses; its fourth season premieres Oct. 19, in a new Friday-night time slot. “Parks and Recreation” returns for a fifth season Sept. 20.
