SCHITT’S CREEK – 2020 – COMEDY – EUGENE LEVY
The series has won various accolades, including an ACTRA Award and 18 Canadian Screen Awards. It is the first Canadian comedy series to be nominated for a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Comedy Series and first to win an MTV Movie & TV Award, winning Best Comedic Performance for Daniel Levy in 2019. It is also the first program from Pop TV to receive Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series.
The wealthy Rose family—video store magnate Johnny (Eugene Levy), his wife and former soap opera actress Moira (Catherine O’Hara), and their adult children David and Alexis (Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy)—lose their fortune after being defrauded by their business manager. They are forced to rebuild their lives with their sole remaining asset: a small town named Schitt’s Creek, which they had bought for their son as a joke birthday gift back in 1991.
The Roses relocate to Schitt’s Creek, moving into two adjacent rooms in a run-down motel. As the family adjusts to their new lives, their well-to-do attitudes come into conflict with the more provincial residents of Schitt’s Creek, including mayor Roland Schitt (Chris Elliott), his wife Jocelyn (Jenn Robertson), and the motel’s manager, Stevie (Emily Hampshire).
Daniel Levy came up with the idea for the show while watching reality television. He told Out.com, “I had been watching some reality TV at the time and was concentrating on what would happen if one of these wealthy families would lose everything. Would the Kardashians still be the Kardashians without their money?” He turned to his father, Eugene Levy, to help develop the show; Eugene Levy came up with series title. Daniel Levy decided to make the location of Schitt’s Creek vague, but in August 2018 said that it is in Canada.
The Levys initially pitched the show to several networks in Canada and the United States. Cable networks HBO and Showtime passed on the series, while broadcast networks ABC (United States) and the CBC (Canada) expressed interest. The show was first sold to the CBC, but the Levys decided against ABC as its U.S. broadcaster due to the network’s alleged history of creative interference. Schitt’s Creek eventually found a U.S. home on Pop TV after striking a deal with network head Brad Schwartz, who had previously hired Daniel on MTV Canada. ITV Studios Global Entertainment also partnered with the CBC and Pop to distribute the show worldwide. The series was initially produced solely by the CBC, but became a co-production with Pop TV beginning in season two.
