Schitt's Creek (stylized as Schitt$ Creek) is a Canadian television sitcom created by father and son Eugene and Dan Levy that aired on CBC Television from January 13, 2015, to April 7, 2020.It consists of 80 episodes spread over six seasons. Produced by Not a Real Company Productions and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the series follows the formerly wealthy Rose family's trials and tribulations. After their business manager embezzles the family business, Rose Video, the family loses its fortune and relocates to Schitt's Creek, a small town they once purchased as a joke. Now living in a motel, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) and Moira Rose (Catherine O'Hara)—along with their adult children, David (Dan Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy)—must adjust to life without money.
The series conception came from Dan Levy, who wondered how wealthy families, as frequently depicted on American reality television, would react if they were to lose all their money.He further developed the series with his father, Eugene, before pitching the series to several Canadian and American networks. The series was first sold to CBC Television in Canada and secured final funding to start production in its sale to Pop TV in the United States, where it debuted on February 11, 2015. Although limited in popularity throughout its first few seasons, the series's appearance on Netflix after its third season is credited for the show's sudden rise in stature, attributed to the "Netflix bump" and a dynamic social media presence.
Schitt's Creek received critical acclaim and garnered a cult following, particularly for its writing, humour, and acting. The series has won various accolades, including two ACTRA Awards 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. It also received two Screen Actors Guild Awards, including Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series and a total of 19 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series twice. The show received 15 of these nominations for its sixth and final season, setting a record for most Emmy nominations for a comedy series's final season. For its portrayal of LGBTQ+ people, the series received three nominations for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, winning twice.
At the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, the series' final season swept all seven major comedy awards. It was the first time for a comedy or drama series to receive all seven awards; Dan Levy notably received Outstanding Comedy Series, Writing and Directing for a Comedy Series (the last he shared with Andrew Cividino). It set a record for winning all four major acting categories (Lead Actor/Actress and Supporting Actor/Actress) for O'Hara, Murphy and both Levys—a first for a comedy or drama series. 's 2018 record, as well as for most Emmy nominations and wins by a comedy series in its final season.Simultaneously, the series set a new record for most Emmy wins by a comedy series in a single season, beating The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The wealthy Rose family—video store magnate Johnny (Eugene Levy), his wife and former soap opera actress Moira (Catherine O'Hara), and their pampered adult children David (Dan Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy)—lose their fortune after being defrauded by their business manager. They rebuild their lives with their sole remaining asset: a small town named Schitt's Creek, which Johnny bought for David as a joke birthday gift in 1991.The Roses relocate to Schitt's Creek, moving into two adjacent rooms in a run-down motel. While 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), the motel's manager Stevie Budd (Emily Hampshire), town council members Ronnie (Karen Robinson) and Bob (John Hemphill), the veterinarian Ted Mullens (Dustin Milligan) and Jazzagal member and Café Tropical waitress Twyla Sands (Sarah Levy).

Dan 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 the series title. Dan Levy decided to make the location of Schitt's Creek vague, but in August 2018 said that it is in Canada.
The premise of Eugene Levy's character being forced to move his family back to a town that he once bought as a joke also recalls actress Kim Basinger's $20 million purchase of the town of Braselton, Georgia in 1989. He said: "My wife had an idea for a television show about boomers not having money or moving in with their kids. Their situation was described as being up sh–'s creek. It just made us laugh. Then my son Daniel came in with an article one day about an actress, Alec Baldwin's ex-wife (Basinger), who bought a town. She was hoping that film people would come to the town to use it as a location area and she lost a lot of money. The idea of wealthy people buying a town went back to the Schitt's Creek idea."
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 a broadcast network in America and the CBC in Canada expressed interest. The show was first sold to the CBC, but the Levys decided against major U.S. broadcasters after getting nervous about broadcasters' reputations for 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 Dan on MTV Canada.
During the early stages of development, various networks suggested the title of the show be changed to make it sound less vulgar. The Levys resisted these suggestions and argued "Schitt" was a legitimate last name. To prove their point, they brought pages copied from a phone book to the CBC showing listings for individuals with the "Schitt" surname. The CBC agreed and allowed the Levys to keep the original title.The name has still faced censorship issues during promotional tours in the United States, with many networks shortening the title or providing extra disclaimers before using it on-air.
Dan Levy initially envisioned the series ending with season five, but agreed to a sixth season after receiving a two-year renewal following the show's fourth season.
Catherine O'Hara was the series creators' first choice for the role of eccentric family matriarch, Moira Rose. O'Hara had previously worked with Eugene Levy on SCTV and several of Christopher Guest's films. She initially turned down Levy's offer to star in Schitt's Creek, citing "laziness" and an aversion to long-term projects. Levy reached out to another (unnamed) actress, but continued to court O'Hara for the role. O'Hara eventually agreed to participate in the presentation pilot with no obligation to continue in the role after Schitt's Creek was ordered to series. After the show was picked up by the CBC, O'Hara agreed to continue in the role.
Annie Murphy was offered the role of spoiled socialite Alexis Rose after actress Abby Elliott was unable to continue due to scheduling conflicts.Murphy was on the verge of giving up on acting since she had not worked in over two years when she got an email inviting her to audition for the role. She first auditioned for the role in Los Angeles, where Dan Levy said she stood out due to her "wonderfully natural likability." Eugene Levy was unsure of Murphy's casting because she did not possess the blonde hair he had pictured for the role of Alexis. Murphy was subsequently called back for a second audition for a different role, sarcastic motel clerk Stevie Budd. After this audition, Dan Levy convinced his father that Murphy could dye her hair blonde, and she was officially cast as Alexis Rose.
Emily Hampshire was cast as the deadpan motel clerk, Stevie Budd, after auditioning for the role in Los Angeles. She originally requested to submit a taped audition on account of her nerves and recurring hive breakouts. Hampshire ultimately agreed to audition in person, but states she has no recollection of the experience. According to Daniel Levy, who was present for the process, Hampshire gave a "great" audition, then proceeded to lift her shirt over her head to hide and slowly rocked back and forth. Levy later told Hampshire he found her audition "charming", and she was offered the part of Stevie.
Noah Reid was offered the role of David's business partner and love interest, Patrick Brewer, in season three. Dan Levy was socially familiar with Reid and invited him to audition on the suggestion of Stacey Farber.Reid had never watched the show before he auditioned and was unsure how long the character would be a part of the series. Dan Levy was not present during the audition process and could not chemistry test with Reid before he was cast.
Other cast regulars Chris Elliott and Sarah Levy were given the roles of Roland Schitt and Twyla Sands, respectively, without auditioning. Elliott says when Eugene Levy offered him the role of the titular town mayor, he thought, "Why would I say no?"Sarah Levy, the real-life daughter of Eugene Levy and real-life sister of Dan Levy, was asked to be a part of the show before it was fully developed. She says she was glad not to be cast as Alexis, as being out of her real-life family's orbit on the show allowed her to "do [her] own thing."
Schitt's Creek is produced by Not a Real Company Productions in association with CBC and Pop TV.Pop TV joined the production team in season two after the series' first season was produced solely in association with CBC. ITV Studios Global Entertainment also partnered with the CBC and Pop to distribute the show worldwide.

Following the series finale, Daniel Levy was asked about the possibility of a feature film. While not committed to an idea at the time, he has expressed interest should such an idea materialize. "To be honest this is the best way we could have ever ended the show. If there is an idea that pops into my head it has to be really freaking good because this is a nice way to say goodbye. Fingers crossed we get a nice idea popping into our head soon. I would love to work with these people again."
