Everything’s coming up Schitt.
Dan Levy, the co-creator and star of Pop TV’s “Schitt’s Creek,” has inked a three-year overall deal with Disney’s ABC Studios, the network announced Thursday.
“Dan Levy has proven himself as one of the most creative people in the TV business. His writing, acting and producing skills will be a tremendous asset to ABC Studios, and we couldn’t be more excited to be in business with him,” Jonnie Davis, President of ABC Studios, said in a statement.
“Schitt’s Creek,” which Levy created with dad Eugene, is nominated for outstanding comedy at the 2019 Emmy Awards and has, over five years, become one of the most critically acclaimed shows on TV, a heartwarming and hilarious story about an obscenely rich family who loses it all.
"As I say a bittersweet goodbye to ‘Schitt’s Creek,’ I look forward to the opportunity and privilege to continue to tell inclusive and meaningful stories that shine a positive light out there,” Levy said.
The sixth and final season of “Schitt’s Creek” premieres on Jan. 7.
