The Orchard has acquired North American and UK theatrical and digital rights to Harmontown.

Neil Berkeley directed the documentary about Dan Harmon, creator of the hit Community show, who is fired from the show and takes his own podcast on tour.

Future You Pictures and Starburns Industries produced the film and there are appearances by Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Jason Sudeikis and Joel McHale.

The Orchard plans an autumn release. Harmontown premiered at SXSW. Harmon will embark upon another podcast tour to promote the film’s theatrical expansion.

UTA Independent Film Group and Josh Braun of Submarine represented the film-maker.
