Levy to Write, Direct and Produce and Star in an Original Untitled Rom-Com as First Feature Project
Netflix today announced a new partnership with four time Emmy Award-winning multi-hyphenate talent Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek) to write and produce scripted content and other creative projects for Netflix.
News comes exactly one year after his historic haul at the 2020 Primetime Emmys.
Levy’s work in film will begin immediately with an original Untitled Romantic Comedy which Levy will write, direct, produce and star in. SISTER’s Stacey Snider and Kate Fenske will also produce alongside Levy.
Levy’s work in series will commence in July 2022.
Quote from Dan Levy: “Netflix offered Schitt’s Creek a second home at just the right time and opened the doors to a whole new audience for us. Watching the show thrive there has only enhanced my excitement about continuing to tell specific, meaningful stories with them in both tv and feature film. A full circle moment.”
Quote from Scott Stuber, Head of Global Film and Bela Bajaria, Head of Global Series: “Dan Levy is an incredible all-around creative talent, who thoughtfully approaches every story with a meaningful perspective. His work on Schitt’s Creek charmed audiences around the world and we’re thrilled to partner and create new films and shows with Dan.”
Levy’s beloved nine time Emmy Award-winning series Schitt’s Creek has found a worldwide audience on Netflix.
The series broke multiple records at the 2020 Emmys, including becoming the most awarded comedy series in a single year, the first ever comedy series to win an award in all four major acting categories in the same year, and the most wins for a comedy series in its final season. Levy personally tied the record for most wins by an individual in a single season, and became the only individual to win four major categories (acting, directing, writing, producing) in a single year.
