Eugene Levy's Schitt's Creek debuts Jan. 13

October 22, 2014 -

SCTV alumni Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara travel up Schitt’s Creek starting Tuesday, Jan. 13.

That’s the debut date for the new CBC comedy, which also stars Levy’s son Daniel Levy, Chris Elliott (There’s Something About Mary, Groundhog Day) and Annie Murphy.

A video clip released by the CBC looks promising.

Levy and O’Hara play a filthy rich video store magnate and his soap star wife, who lose everything and are forced to move with their spoiled kids to Schitt’s Creek, a small town they bought as a joke.

The show comes with a bona fide comedy pedigree. Besides co-starring a couple of Canadian comedy legends, it was created by Levy father and son through their Toronto firm Not a Real Company Productions, which a news release says “aims to establish itself as a leader in Canada and abroad.”

The company’s executives include Fred Levy and Andrew Barnsley, also an executive producer on CTV’s Spun Out.

“Eugene and Daniel have created a brilliant and irreverent series with an outstanding cast. Audiences across the country will love it,” said Sally Catto, general manager of English TV programming, in the release.

The series debuts with two back-to-back half-hour episodes beginning at 9 p.m.
