Annie Murphy, Jenn Robertson Join Canadian 'Schitt's Creek' Comedy
TORONTO – Annie Murphy and Jenn Robertson have been added to the Eugene Levy- and Catherine O'Hara-starring Canadian comedy Schitt's Creek.
Murphy will play a socialite daughter, while Robertson will fill the role of Jocelyn Schitt, the wife of the Schitt's Creek mayor, played by Chris Elliott.
Emily Hampshire, Tim Rozon and Sarah Levy round out the ensemble cast for the CBC comedy from Not a Real Company Productions, a production shingle for Levy and his son, Dan Levy.
The Canadian comedy, now shooting at Pinewood Toronto Studios in Toronto through June 26, sees Eugene Levy play a video store billionaire with a soap star wife (O'Hara) and their two kids: a hipster son (Dan Levy) and a socialite daughter.
As a family, they discover they are broke and forced to rebuild their lives in a rural town called Schitt's Creek.
Jerry Ciccoritti and Paul Fox are directing Schitt's Creek, which ITV Studios is distributing internationally ahead of a January 2015 debut on the CBC.
