Can television make us better people? Michael Schur, creator of the shows “The Good Place” and “Parks and Recreation,” will come to campus on Monday, Sept. 16, for a discussion on the capacity of network television to ask and answer the big moral questions. Free tickets to the 6 p.m. event at Washington Hall are available via the LaFortune box office. 

While at Notre Dame, Schur will also meet with students from the God and the Good Life core curriculum course and from The Good Class, an innovative College of Arts and Letters course blending perspectives from philosophy and film, television and theater. 

Shur, also a co-creator of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” has been nominated for 15 Emmys and is the winner of two, winning Outstanding Comedy Series for “The Office” in 2006 and Outstanding Writing for A Variety, Music or Comedy Program for “Saturday Night Live” in 2002.
