Schur

Writer / Producer

As the showrunner of NBC’s “The Good Place,” Schur has used comedy as a vehicle to explore ethics and philosophy, earning the show a Peabody Award and six Emmy nominations. He started his career as a writer on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” where he faced the daunting challenge of taking charge of “Weekend Update” immediately after the 9/11 attacks. He went on to serve as a writer-producer on NBC’s “The Office” and as co-creater of the NBC series “Parks and Recreation” (with Greg Daniels), which ran for seven seasons, and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (with Daniel J. Goor), just renewed for a seventh season after its move from Fox in 2018. In March, Schur signed a new deal to remain at longtime home Universal Television.
