Harmon's first showrunning job led to some unexpected compilations in Season 1. "We planned that our lead Jeff (Joel McHale) would go from lone wolf to being part of a family in 12 (episodes), but after six, I thought, 'Well, he's already there.'

"We got less 'Office-y' and more '30 Rock-y,' " he explains with a characteristic pop culture reference.
Favorite TV Moment: The series finale of "Quantum Leap." "I remember watching that as a young kid and going, 'Holy crap, it's a time travel show and it's killing me.' "
Big Break: "Ben Stiller gave me my first big break in TV -- we did a pilot ('Heat Vision and Jack'). It was critically well-received but failed. Still, that led to my seduction and now full immersion in television."
