Plot Edit

The series follows Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy), a wealthy video store magnate and his wife Moira (Catherine O'Hara), a washed up soap star, who, after losing all their money to dubious investments, are forced to rebuild their lives in their only remaining asset: the small town of Schitt's Creek, which they once purchased as a joke gift for the birthday of one of their children. They wind up living in two adjacent rooms of a rundown motel with their pampered twenty-something adult children; a son David (Daniel Levy), a super uber pansexual hipster and a daughter, Alexis (Annie Murphy), a selfish, club-going, socialite. The cast also includes Chris Elliott, Jennifer Robertson and Emily Hampshire. The show is based on a series of hilarious situations which involve the once filthy rich family and their big city, worldly attitudes suddenly confronted by small town living, with honest, down to earth, hard working folk providing the backdrop.

The series is filmed on location in Goodwood, Ontario, in the Regional Municipality of Durham of the Greater Toronto Area and Mono, Ontario, where the motel scenes are filmed. The interior scenes for the first two seasons were filmed at Pinewood Toronto Studios in Toronto, while the interior scenes for the third season were shot at Dufferin Gate Studios in Toronto.
