Schur

Schur’s NBC series “The Good Place” wrapped its fourth and final season in 2020 without winning an Emmy (out of 12 nominations), but its comedic explorations of ethics and philosophy in the afterlife did earn it a prestigious Peabody Award, along with a trio of Hugos, which recognize excellence in science fiction and fantasy. He’s been co-creator alongside Greg Daniels of the seven-season “Parks and Recreation,” as well as Daniel J.

In April, he wrote and produced “A Parks and Recreation Special,” raising $5 million for Feeding America, which is helping keep low-income Americans fed throughout COVID.
