Schitt's Creek was created by father-and-son duo Dan Levy and Eugene Levy. While it was on the air from January 2015 to April 2020, it really rose to fame after dropping on Netflix, when even more people were able to enjoy the Rose family.
Once wealthy, this group faced many struggles after moving into a motel in Schitt's Creek, a town they bought as a joke. Over the course of its six seasons, this series set records for the most Emmy nominations received by a comedy in its final season and for winning all the major acting categories at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards.
