Hulu Picks Up Schitt’s Creek


Hulu has acquired the U.S. streaming rights to Schitt’s Creek, which will debut on the platform on October 3.

The comedy series centers on an outrageously wealthy video store magnate (Eugene Levy), his former soap-star wife (Catherine O’Hara) and their two adult children (Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy). When the family finds themselves to be broke, they are forced to move to Schitt’s Creek, a small town that the magnate once bought as a joke.

Schitt’s Creek was originally commissioned by CBC and produced by Not A Real Company. It was created by Eugene and Daniel Levy. It made history in 2020 by sweeping all of the Primetime Emmy Awards comedy categories with the most wins in a single season for a comedy.

“Based on the number of Schitt’s Creek GIFs we Slack every day, it’s no surprise that we are absolutely thrilled to welcome Johnny, Moira, Alexis, ‘Daviiid’ and the wonderfully unique residents of Schitt’s Creek to Hulu,” said Joe Earley, president of Hulu. “We can’t wait to share the award-winning, blisteringly funny, yet heartwarming series and characters with our subscribers. We know they’ll fit in nicely.”
