'Community': EP Dan Harmon explains Abed's evolution


If there's any character on NBC's "Community" that fans have asked us to find out more about, it's Abed.

In many ways, Abed (played by Danny Pudi) has been like the chorus in a Greek tragedy, which speaks for the audience, but the show has begun to explore his character and develop it as in Thursday's (Nov. 4) episode called "Aerodynamics of Gender" with guest star Hilary Duff.

"Abed was always a commenter in the beginning," executive producer Dan Harmon tells Zap2it. "He was sidekick kind of a character. But that was there as a safety valve for anybody who was so sick of TV and didn't trust it anymore. Here he was a fan of everything in the past and also now a fan of what you were watching with him."

Harmon describes Abed as his way of connecting to an audience - a character that the viewers, who may be wary of a new show, can relate to.
