Dan Harmon and Mitch Hurwitz, a.k.a. the creator of Community and the creator of Arrested Development respectively, are working on a double secret collaboration project. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Harmon shared a few very scant details:
I've begged [Hurwitz] to come to the writers' room on 'Community,' but he has wisely declined. I don't think he'd be able to stand being on someone else's thing. He and I have talked about doing a project together, so that every time I see him, I'm like, "We weren't just drunk, we're really gonna do that?" And he's like, "Yeah."
Hurwitz did made an appearance on Community last Thursday playing a cross between Jeff "the Dude" Lebowski and Van Wilder—wait, what? A project TOGETHER?
I don't want to talk about it… Okay, it would embrace the emerging media-scape, and use us both in a way that we weren't compromising each other, but are still collaborating, and giving the audience a lot to digest. That's all I'll say.
This is great news for people who like smart meta TV shows that are always on the precipice of cancellation and sometimes deal with being cancelled in smart meta ways.
