Schitt’s Creek

While watching a reality show, Daniel Levy came up with an idea of creating the show. He then presented his idea to his father Eugene, who then came up with the show’s name. The father-son duo then pitched the show’s idea to several television networks, including HBO, before getting accepted by CBC. But they faced a problem in the title of the show as Schitt sounded vulgar to broadcasters. They then proved their point of the name being a proper surname using various copies from phonebooks.

They then cast Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy, and Jennifer Robertson to be part of the lead cast. The series follows Eugene as Johnny, Daniel, David, and Annie as Alexis into rebuilding their lost fortune and business. The series has a total of six seasons with eighty episodes.
