Levy inks Netflix deal


Dan Levy has landed a Netflix deal for film and TV.

The Schitt's Creek creator will work across formats as part of the eight-figure deal with the streaming service, Variety reports.

While his TV deal will begin in July 2022, after his current contract with ABC Signature ends, Levy is set to immediatel­y start production on an untitled romantic comedy, in which he will star, as well as write, produce and direct.

No other details of the project have been announced.

“Netflix offered Schitt's Creek a second home at just the right time and opened the doors to a whole new audience for us,” Levy said. “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.”

Netflix's Scott Stuber and Bela Bajaria added: “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.”
