Harmon has been developing an animated program for Adult Swim titled Rick & Morty, but this Fox contract would mark a return to primetime for the writer/producer.

Earlier this month, Harmon appeared on G4 and spoke on his Community firing. The creator defended his vision for the show, but also admitted he can sort of be a jerk sometimes.
