SCTV and Christopher Guest-movie veterans Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara’s new series Schitt’s Creek is coming to America as the first original scripted series for POP, the rebranded TV Guide Network.
The series follows the members a rich family who have to live in a town they purchased as a joke—called, yes, Schitt’s Creek—when hard times hit. POP’s president of entertainment and media Brad Schwartz explained in a statement that the show “answers the question—what would the Kardashians do if they woke up one day, completely broke?”
O’Hara, who is brilliant at playing the deluded rich, and Levy play the family’s matriarch and patriarch, while Levy’s son Daniel plays their “über-hipster” son and Annie Murphy plays their daughter. Chris Elliott also stars as the mayor of Schitt’s Creek.
The 13-episode series will run on CBC, which commissioned it, in Canada. Get a taste of the show below.
