‘Community’ Writer Andy Bobrow Reflects on Working with Dan Harmon

“Step five is delete. Keep the two percent that isn’t shit and delete the ninety-eight percent that’s shit. Rewrite it. Within your re-write, there will be two more percent that isn’t shit. Then just keep tossing the shit and replacing it until the ratio is tolerable.”

Television writer Andy Bobrow in a new essay “How Writing for the TV Show Community Cured Me,” in which he talks about landing a writing job on Community and how much he’s learned from Dan Harmon’s rewrites. The essay also includes two drafts of season 2 episode “Mixology Certification” to show just how much rewriting went into Community episodes.
