EMMY 2012: Writing for a Comedy Series

WRITING FOR A COMEDY SERIES

Chris McKenna, Community
Lena Dunham, Girls
Louis C.K., Louie
Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation
Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation

Forgive the brevity of this post, but for me this is no contest (okay, maybe a slight contest when you factor in the brilliance of the Girls pilot; I usually hate pilots, but this was an episode that did not need to be regurgitated once the series proper began). To my mind, it’s all about Community and “Remedial Chaos Theory.” Check out this earlier post on why it was the best comedic episode of 2011. Will it win? Probably not. Girls probably takes the cake, and while I’m okay with that, nothing beats Greendale’s Study Group and their first foray into the alternate timelines.
