How The Good Place Is Written
Have you ever watched The Good Place and wondered, How do they do that?It’s a fair question. The Good Place is a bit of a marvel of modern TV writing, with its ability to pack so much story, character, and ideas in a network sitcom format. At Vulture Festival L.A. last November, we tried to get to the bottom of that question by hosting a panel with the show’s writers. Moderated by cast member and The Good Place: The Podcast host Marc Evan Jackson, the show’s creator and showrunner Mike Schur was joined by writers Megan Amram, Jen Statsky, Josh Siegal, Dylan Morgan, Matt Murray, Cord Jefferson, Kassia Miller, Dan Schofield, Andrew Law, Christopher Encell, and Rae Sanni.
Now that panel can be exclusively heard on Good One, Vulture Comedy’s podcast about jokes and the people who write them. Read a short excerpt of the panel below, and tune in to Good One every Monday on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
