A lot of people understand that creating television takes a lot of work from a lot of people. Often a show can suffer from there being too many cooks in the kitchen. But some people don’t understand just how difficult a show runner’s job can be, especially if you’re a perfectionist like Community’s Dan Harmon.
Advanced Television Production: 5 Days, 2 Scripts, No Sleep is a 42-minute documentary about Harmon and his writers trying to complete two scripts in very little time. The documentary will take viewers into the depths of the writers’ room on a television sitcom as well as the many duties Harmon has from attending rehearsals to meeting with the crew to discuss upcoming episodes.
Watch two clips from the documentary above. You can catch the full documentary on the Community season five DVD which will be out Aug. 5.
