Michael Schur, creator of the critically acclaimed and recently ended NBC-TV series “The Good Place,” is working on a book: “How to Be Good: A Definitive Answer for Exactly What to Do, In Every Possible Situation.”

Publisher Simon & Schuster says it will be out in the fall of 2021.

Combining humor with philosophy, as the TV series did, the Emmy-winning writer, producer and actor will “deal with the large and small ethical challenges we all face every day,” according to the publisher.

Schur also helped create “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Parks & Recreation” and was a writer and producer for “The Office.”
