From The Good Place to The OA, "there's never been such a bounty of intentionally philosophical programs as there is right now," says Amanda Bell. "Sure, law procedurals might cite Aristotle once in a while, and sci-fi series sometimes give props to those ancients for looking up at the stars all those millennia ago, but now there are certain shows that dare to do more than just stumble upon these ideas. These programs are intentionally getting into some weighty theoretical territory, and what's even more exciting is that it's not limited to just one genre." ALSO: The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss has attributed his TV success to having a philosophy degree.
