Here's a life lesson for the world… Don't mess with Chevy Chase!!
When Dan Harmon, the creator of Community, unleashed the show star's nasty voicemail, that was the last straw!
Apparently Sony execs hadn't been gelling with Dan anyways, but this was just too much. Chevy was humiliated, and publicity or not, the show's behind-the-scenes was then viewed as a chaotic mess!
So when it came time to renew his showrunner contract, Sony was like… eh!
Do not believe anyone that tells you on Monday that I quit or diminished my role so I could spend more time with my loved ones, or that I negotiated and we couldn’t come to an agreement, etc. It couldn’t be less true because, just to make this clear, literally nobody called me.
But they probably didn't call because they were afraid they'd reach voicemail! Ha!
