Here’s something worth saying “Cool… Cool-cool-cool” about. Community creator and exec producer Dan Harmon is writing a book of funny essays to be released in 2016, EW has learned exclusively. According to publisher Doubleday, the as-yet untitled collection will “present a mix of the author’s recollections, musings, and riffs.” There’s a lot of material for Harmon’s musings and riffs, in addition to the highs and lows of Community’s fraught five-season run on NBC. (It’s since been picked up by Yahoo Screen). He’s the co-creator and exec producer of the Adult Swim series Rick & Morty, as well as the Host of weekly podcast Harmontown, and the star of the recently released documentary, also called Harmontown.

Harmon is already a published author—his first book, You’ll Be Perfect When You’re Dead, was a limited-edition compilation of greatest hits from his brilliant, rambling blog Dan Harmon Poops. But this will be his first book of essays that were always meant to be in a book.
