The breakout show Schitt’s Creek is back for season four and apparently is loosely based off of reality television shows like the Kardashians and The Real Housewives franchise. Daniel Levy is the writer and an actor who plays the full of life character David. Levy says that some of his inspiration was drawn from seeing Housewives living in the lap of luxury and wondered what would happen if they lost all of their money.
The all star cast of Eugene levy, Daniel Levy, and Catherine O’Hara makes for comedic gold. So here are some fun facts about Schitt’s Creek that you didn’t know you needed to know.
1.Some of the Rose Family is Family in real lif
Eugene Levy (Johnny) and Daniel Levy (David) are father and son in real life! Now I get why I thought they looked so much alike. This magical duo writes, directs and acts in their own show.
- People think that Johnny and Moira are married in real life
Although Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy have some seriously convincing chemistry on screen they are not married in real life. They have stared in a few shows together and according to the New York Post they claim their chemistry is purely a coincidence.
- Moira’s wigs came to be rather organically
Catherine O’Hara actually came up with the idea to have Moira’s wigs on the show. This is SHOCKING because in all honesty Moira’s identity is summed up by her many wigs.
Seriously, if you haven’t given Schitt’s Creek a chance you’re missing out, it will have you in stitches from laughter. Catch up with season one through three on Netflix and season four airing now on Pop TV.
