    These 4 clips* are from the KCRW interview with Dan Harmon and his frequent collaborator, Rob Shcrab with The Business producer Darby Maloney. Harmon-- a self-described "creative elitist"-- opens up about why he was fired off of his show "Community," the mutual animosity between him and Sony-- the studio that owns the show-- and how he wants to use his new pilot deals with FOX and CBS to prove he's 'employable.'

    To hear the full interview go to:

    Below is a general summary of each clip*...

    *Every clip is individually embeddable.

    CLIP 1: Harmon says, 'the job of running that show was as exhausting for me as it was for everyone above me and below me.' And he addresses the rumors that he was 'difficult to work with.'

    CLIP 2: Harmon says, 'I would have fired me too because it's a business.' He says he 'wouldn't have done a damn thing different' and that he has no regrets on what went down.

    CLIP 3: Harmon says, "Sony just always was so bummed about about the way I thought and wrote and stuff and they always fantasized about getting rid of me." He goes on to say how Sony never called him at the end and that there was mutual antipathy.

    CLIP 4: Harmon says of his new deals with FOX and CBS he wants to try to make a hit on broadcast TV. He's going to write multi-camera sit coms this time a la "Taxi," "Cheers" and "All in the Family"-- not like the "lazy TV" that's been made lately. Ultimately, he wants to prove he's "employable."
