Michael Schur is a supervising executive producer on NBC’s new comedy “Sunnyside.”
Schur created and serves as showrunner and executive producer on “The Good Place.” He also co-created the critically acclaimed NBC comedies “Parks and Recreation” and the Golden Globe-winning “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” He also serves as an executive producer on the Netflix comedy series “Master of None.”
Prior to “Parks,” Schur spent four years as a writer-producer on the Emmy Award-winning NBC hit “The Office,” where he was also individually nominated twice for writing the episodes “Christmas Party” and “The Negotiation.” (Some may also recognize him for playing Dwight Schrute’s ghoulish, bearded, beet-farming cousin, Mose Schrute.) His first TV writing job was at “Saturday Night Live,” where he spent seven seasons, including three as producer of “Weekend Update” with Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon.
Schur currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, J.J. Philbin, and their two children.
