Does Dan Harmon have aspergers?
Dan Harmon is a writer who created the NBC television comedy series Community, which features a character who is on the autism spectrum. While he was researching the character, Abed, he realized that many of the symptoms sounded a bit too familiar. He has a unique working style, mapping out character arcs in eight-point cycles he refers to as “embryos.” While he is clearly a talented and visionary writer, his co-workers found him too difficult to work with, and he was fired from Community in 2012. He has publicly admitted to being on the autism spectrum.
