ET Canada is on the set of “Schitt’s Creek” to get the scoop on season 5 from the comedy’s stars Eugene Levy, Dan Levy, and Annie Murphy, who also share why they believe their show has found such a massive audience.
Checking in with the stars of ‘Schitt’s Creek.’
Eugene and Dan Levy visit Access Live to tease their upcoming “Schitt’s Creek Holiday Special.” Plus, hear why Dan decided to not involve homophobia in the narrative of the show and what the audience feedback has been. “Schitt’s Creek Holiday Special” airs Dec. 19 at 10/9c on Pop TV.
Schitt’s Creek‘s David is going to liven up his ho-hum relationship with Patrick even if it literally kills him.
In this exclusive sneak peek at the riotous Pop comedy’s Season 5 premiere (Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 10/9c), Alexis — faux concerned that her brother’s romance with Patrick is on a collision course with “snoozetown” — invites her sib and his other half to accompany her and Ted on their latest intimacy-boosting “adventure date.”
For his part, David is too perturbed by the mere accusation that his love life has hit a repetitive patch to even consider such an overture. But Alexis has the receipts, courtesy of a decades-old issue of Major Lady magazine.
Press PLAY above to watch David and Alexis do their supremely entertaining brother-sister dance, and then scroll down for a first look at the somewhat dangerous looking double date that results. And programming reminder: As a pre-Season 5 appetizer (or is it a Season 4 dessert?), Schitt’s Creek will air a standalone Christmas special on Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 10/9c.

Sorry for the downtime. The site was undergoing maintenance. Check out new photos and video of Dan for Nordstrom. There are a bunch of videos so be sure to hit ‘continue reading‘ to see them all.
Seattle-based retailer Nordstrom has partnered with fashion-savvy comedians Daniel Levy, Liza Koshy, Phoebe Robinson, Hannah Simone and Mary Ellen Mathews for the marketing campaign for their 2018 Anniversary Sale, which takes place from July 20 through August 5.
The photo and video campaign will be featured on the retailer’s website, social platforms and in the Anniversary Sale catalog. The comedians also filmed short videos promoting the retailer’s “Show Us How You #NSALE” sweepstakes, where customers can submit an Anniversary Sale photo or video via social media or online to express their enthusiasm for the sale and win a $500 Nordstrom Gift Card.
“Fashion is about having fun and we think we’ve captured that with this campaign,” said Scott Meden, Nordstrom Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “We believe in the power of personal style and in making customers feel good. We hope customers enjoy the energy and wit our stylish comedian cast bring to the campaign.”
Adds Levy: “I’m just going to be honest: I’m cheap and I love a good sale. I buy all of my favorite clothes on sale – the special pieces I want but just can’t bring myself to buy at full price. The Anniversary Sale is great because these are brand-new arrivals – but at super sale prices.”
Sale items include brand-new clothing, shoes, accessories, home items and beauty/grooming for men, women and kids, including limited-distribution brands like Topshop, J.Crew and more.

Four seasons ago, Pop TV comedy series Schitt’s Creek began with a compelling fish-out-of-water premise. Following the wealthy Rose family and their life of excess, the series really got cooking when they all went broke, resulting in them moving to a run-down town they once bought as a joke.

While this conceit is essential to the series, for co-creator and star Daniel Levy, the show has always been about love. “It’s been about leaving them in this town to realize what is truly important. That was really the thrust of the show from the very beginning, and fortunately, you can tell so many stories about love,” he told TVLine’s Michael Ausiello last month during the comedy’s panel at Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys. “It presents itself in so many different iterations. That’s been what the joy has been for us, to continue to reveal that to these characters.”
Co-creator Eugene Levy, appearing on the panel with his son as well as co-stars Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy, discussed Schitt’s Creek as a place of inclusivity, emblematic of the series’ values.
“Now, the town itself is a community that deals with people for who they are, and not what they are. This is not a black, white or brown show; it’s not about gay or straight; it’s not about city/country; it’s not about male/female,” he said. “People are accepted for who they are, and that’s the good-feeling vibe about Schitt’s Creek.”

“Schitt’s Creek” actress Annie Murphy was also a late-joiner, but says she’s made “great strides” online, thanks to help from co-star Daniel Levy. “Great strides. I think before the show, I had tweeted maybe three times and now look at me!” Murphy jokes. “Sometimes I retweet things twice a week!” “I’ve also, over the course of four seasons, been like, ‘Hey, you want to live tweet maybe tonight because the show is on? I don’t know? Could help.’ You’ve shown up. You’ve shown up,” says Levy. “Flourishing social media presence!” Murphy found social media “overwhelming.” “I think I just got quite overwhelmed by the constant bombardment of information and not necessarily information that I wanted to absorb,” she admits. “But it’s unavoidable.” Season four of “Schitt’s Creek” premiered Jan. 24 on the Pop Network in the U.S.

With their pampered lives a memory, the Roses must face their humiliating hardship and figure out what it means to be a family, all within the unfamiliar environs of their new home. Daniel Levy, Eugene Levy, Annie Murphy & Emily Hampshire stopped by to tell us all about their series, “Schitt’s Creek.”
