Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara: Together Again

Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara attend the SCTV Reunion private after-party honoring The Second City 50th Anniversary at 1616 N. Wells Avenue on December 11, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois. Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara, Canadian friends.

Just when you thought things couldn't get better for Canada after winning all dem Olympic medals yesterday: CBC announced that they've ordered 13 episodes of Schitt's Creek, a sitcom from Eugene Levy and his son Dan. Eugene Levy will play a billionaire with two sons (one of whom will be played by Dan) and a soap-star wife (Catherine O'Hara). When they lose all their money, they find themselves moving to the truly terrible Schitt's Creek (it's a pun!). Chris Elliott will play the mayor! No word on when the Canadian comedy will start shooting, so give it about a year — sorry, aboot a year.
