Schitt’s Creek

Very rich people are generally unlikable lead characters — even when they’re knocked into desperate financial straits, like the Rose family of Schitt’s Creek. Their haughtiness, helplessness and general ineptitude made them all hard to root for — yet we loved watching their misadventures.

Such was the comic brilliance of father and son co-creators Dan Levy and his father, Eugene Levy, and their co-stars Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy.
