‘Community’ Creator Dan Harmon to Appear at New York Television Festival

The 11th annual New York Television Festival opens Oct. 19 with an eclectic slate of events that includes a live performance by “Community” creator Dan Harmon.

Harmon, the fan-revered mastermind behind NBC/Yahoo’s “Community” and Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty,” will bring in guests and perform live at Manhattan’s SVA Theater.

Other notable events on the schedule include an Oct. 20 panel with female showrunners featuring Courtney Kemp Agboh (“Power”), Blair Breard (“Louie”), Barbara Hall (“Madam Secretary”) and Stephanie Laing (“Veep,” “Vice Principals”).

“It’s a great time to love TV and I think this year’s line-up really reflects that notion,” NYTVF Founder/Executive Director Terence Gray said. “There’s been a lot of buzz in the last few months about other major festivals getting into the television game – our primary focus for the past decade as we’ve provided a platform to recognize small-screen storytellers.”

Others attending the festival include Paul Giamatti, Mamie Gummer, John Benjamin Hickey, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara and Morgan Spurlock. There will also be a first-look at a season two episode of WGN America’s “Manhattan.”

The New York Television Festival runs through Oct. 24.
