National Writers Series: Michael Schur
Television writer and producer Michael Schur has had a major role in helping create some of the funniest TV shows from the past decade and a half. Those include The Office, Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Good Place, and his latest, Rutherford Falls. Now he’s written his first book, called “How to Be Perfect: The Correct Answer to Every Moral Question.” It’s a humorous guide to living an ethical life, drawing inspiration from philosophical thought across the centuries. Michael appeared at a virtual National Writers Series event and spoke with his friend Ed Helms, who’s an actor, writer and comedian known for his work on TV shows like The Office and The Hangover movie trilogy.
