About Schitt’s Creek in brief
Schitt’s Creek is a Canadian television sitcom that aired on CBC Television from January 13, 2015, to April 7, 2020. It consists of 80 episodes spread over six seasons. The series follows the trials and tribulations of the formerly wealthy Rose family when they are forced to relocate to a small town. Dan Levy came up with the idea for the show while watching reality television. The Levys initially pitched the show to several networks in Canada and the United States. It was sold to Pop TV in the U.S., where it debuted on February 11, 2015. At the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, the series’ final season swept all seven major comedy awards. The show set a new record for most Emmy wins by a comedy series in a single season, beating The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s 2018 record. 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 Award nominations, including Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series and a total of 19 Primetime Emmys Award nominations. For its portrayal of LGBTQ+ people, the show was nominated twice for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, winning once. The CBC agreed and allowed the Levys to keep the original title of the show during promotional tours with the name Schitt. During the early stages of the development, various networks suggested the title be changed to make it sound less vulgar. To prove their point, they brought a book to the CBC showing phone listings for individuals with the surname ‘Schitt’ The show has faced censorship issues during promotional visits in the United United States, but in August 2018 said that it is in Canada.
It has found a home on Pop TV after striking a deal with Brad Schwartz, who had previously worked on MTV Canada and had previously had a contract with MTV S.C. S. A. The series has won various accolades, including two ACTRA Awards and 18 Canadian Screen Awards, and set a record for winning all four major acting categories for O’Hara, Murphy and both Levys. The last season of the series won 15 Emmys for its sixth and final season, setting an all-time record for the number of Emmy nominations for a comedyseries’ final year. The first season won two Emmys and two SAG Awards for its writing and directing. The second season won one Emmy for best comedy series for its final season. The third season won a SAG Award for best supporting actor in a comedy. The fourth and fifth season won three Emmys, including for best lead actress in a drama series. The sixth and seventh season was the first season to be broadcast on Netflix, which is credited for its sudden rise in stature, attributed to the show’s social media presence. The fifth and sixth seasons were the first seasons to be aired on the network’s streaming service, Netflix. The seventh and eighth seasons will be the first to air on the channel’s cable channel, TLC.
