Below, please find the keynote speech that former Community showrunner Dan Harmon gave at the recent XOXO Festival. It’s got it all: Powerpoint gags, references to vodka and redheads, digs at multi-camera sitcoms, a solid point about how ridiculous it is that the best drama on television is on a network called “American Movie Classics,” and a little history lesson on the various people connectors throughout time, from cave drawings to the Internet. Oh, and he also goes into great detail on the subject of broadcast television dying, using his own personal experiences through the years as reference points and examples.
It’s all very cool, and kind of inspirational. and if you can carve out 30 minutes in the next day or two, I highly recommend checking it out.
