Debmar-Mercury to Syndicate Sitcom ‘Schitt’s Creek’

Canadian Sitcom Currently Airs on Pop

Distributor Debmar-Mercury from Lionsgate has acquired the U.S. broadcast syndication rights to “Schitt’s Creek,” the Canadian half-hour, single-camera scripted comedy currently airing on Pop TV. The series, created by Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy, follows a wealthy family who suddenly find themselves broke and forced to live in Schitt’s Creek, a small town they once bought as a joke.

“Schitt’s Creek” stars Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Chris Elliott, Annie Murphy and Emily Hampshire. The show’s fourth season, which had its finale on Pop on April 11, out-delivered its season one average by 116 percent in adults 18-49, 76 percent in adults 25-54 and 81 percent in total viewers (through March 2018).
