Leaked Sony Memo Explains How To Handle Community Talk Post-Harmon
The ‘Community‘ situation is taking a turn for the worse and faster than we’d expect. It’s bad enough as it is that Dan Harmon is no longer the showrunner on the beloved NBC television show. But Sony continues to put salt on the wound as a leaked memo reveals how the studio wants everybody related to ‘Community’ to handle talking about the show from now on.
It’s not like Sony was in the wrong for putting together this memo for all of those involved with ‘Community,’ but it’s the particular wording that has a lot of fans even more upset than they were a couple of days ago. Here’s a couple of excerpts from the leaked memo that was published on The Hollywood Reporter:
I saw some of the tweets that went out and we’re glad they all addressed their own sentiments quickly, and we’re hoping that the news will lose some steam over the next day, especially if we’re not perpetuating the topic in any way.
Did the studio or network consult with you about these changes?
No they didn’t but we’re looking forward to working with David Guarascio & Moses Port on a new season of Community.
Basically all the people involved with ‘Community’ have been told by Sony to say the same things they’ve more than likely been saying already. It still won’t comfort fans from the plain fact that the show runner who was considered the heart and soul of the thing is long gone.
And at this point the fans are treating Sony like they’re Evil Abed trying to make our timeline the darkest one. Hopefully a good – or in this case at least a decent – fourth season can still happen.
