After Dan Harmon was fired, he began to focus on a podcast called "Harmontown." It's part of a new documentary also called "Harmontown."

Five years ago television writer Dan Harmon had his dream come true when his show, "Community," was picked up by NBC.

While the show went on to gain a loyal following, it was not a smooth experience for him. He was fired after he got into a very public and nasty feud with one of the show's stars.

Rather than get back into the saddle of TV writing, he began to focus on a podcast called Harmontown

It's there that he started to gain an even more rabid fan base. His live appearances of the podcast, along with interviews from past associates are part of a new documentary called, appropriately enough, Harmontown.
