Main article: Schitt's Creek
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 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.
Roland: "You know, I'm starting to get the feeling that you're a little upset."
David: "What would give you that impression?"
Roland: "Well, I first noticed it when 'Heart' came on and nobody was taking the high parts."
