Schur said goodbye to his series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” in the fall of 2021 after an eight-season run, but his dance card is hardly empty. Peacock gave the comedy writer/producer a straight-to-series order for a series adaptation of the 1989 film “Field of Dreams” in August 2021, marking his second show for the streamer following “Rutherford Falls,” which debuted the preceding April.

A Harvard grad who began his career writing for “Saturday Night Live,” Schur also executive produces the HBO series “Hacks,” which was nominated for fifteen Emmys in 2021, winning three, including one for star Jean Smart.
