Schitt's Creek: what is this series everyone is talking about? Schitt's Creek has just come to an end in Canada and yet the comedy has never ceased to be talked about since its recent Emmy win. But what is it ? What is it about ? We tell you everything.

Since this Sunday, September 20 and the 2020 Emmy Awards, Schitt's Creek is the series that comes back most regularly in discussions. Why ? Because she won all the biggest awards last night (best comedy, best screenplay, best actor in a comedy series, best actress in a comedy series, best male and female supporting roles …) while she is still little known in France.

So, Schitt's Creek, what's that all about?

It is a Canadian comedy (aired on CBS) launched in 2015 (and completed since last April), created by Eugene and Daniel Levy. This funny series follows the crazy adventure of the rich Rose family who, after being the victim of a gigantic scam, finds themselves ruined. Only hope for her to get out of it? Go live in Schitt's Creek, a lost town that had been bought from the oldest son on a previous birthday. The opportunity for all members to rebuild themselves humbly (or almost) and to face a particularly painful cultural shock.

Who is in the casting?

Schitt's Creek may be unknown to the general public, but it is nevertheless carried by an excellent cast. Thus, the patriarch is played by Eugene Levy (seen in the American Pie saga), while the matriarch is played by Catherine O'Hara (seen in the Mum saga , I missed the plane ). Other names and well-known faces on the small screen include Chris Elliott ( Scary Movie, How I Met Your Mother ), Tim Rozon ( Being Human ), Emily Hampshire (1 2 Monkeys ) or Dustin Milligan ( Dirk Gently) ) and Annie Murphy ( Rookie Blue ). Beautiful people everywhere who lend themselves to the game of self-mockery with perfection and who allow themselves epic performances.

Where can we see this?

This is the angry question at the present time. If the series was acquired by Netflix in the USA, the streaming platform has not (yet?) Bothered to buy the rights for the rest of the world. In fact, Schitt's Creek is almost unique in France. Why almost? Because there are indeed two solutions, but at the time of SVOD they do not make dream: the episodes are thus available for purchase on YouTube and iTunes. Nonetheless, with the comedy crowning last night, we can hope to see things turn for the better in the future. We cross fingers.

Is it worth it ?

Rated 8.4 / 10 on IMDB, 96% validated on Rotten Tomatoes, awarded at the Emmy Awards … Schitt's Creek is clearly unanimous. And having seen a few episodes in the editorial staff, if the series is slightly sluggish at its beginnings, we can confirm that it is truly incredible once it finds its cruising speed. She diverts her world perfectly, she knows how to be incisive when necessary, she doesn't just redo what has been done before, she constantly invents and surprises … In short, this comedy has everything to make you spend moments memorable through its characters which are extremely endearing throughout the episodes and its cult lines. So yes: go for it!
