'Community's' Yvette Nicole Brown on Why She Isn't Worried About Ex-Showrunner Dan Harmon
It has been a few months since NBC and Sony Television fired Community’s creator and showrunner Dan Harmon. But, while actress Yvette Nicole Brown misses the creative genius behind the show, she warns against pitying him.
“Dan has had three new projects that he’s working on with major networks,” she continues. “It’s going to be that way, because he knows what he’s doing and he’s a good writer and good creator. I don’t think that anybody should be losing sleep or crying for Dan.”
“I think that there was a perception that they brought in some corporate suits. They’re not like that, they’re really not,” she tells us. “Since Comic-Con, we’ve all had a chance to kind of get to know them a little better.”
“They know Community better than I know Community and I have done three seasons and 80-hour weeks for Community. They were bringing up stuff, little comments that one of our characters have said,” she continues. “And I’m like, ‘I don’t even remember that line.’ They really are fans of the show. This is not a game for them.”"Dog Days of Summer" with a Pupularity Contest.
