Having been touted as one of the finest writers around following the massive success of Schitt’s Creek, Dan Levy has now been snapped up Netflix for a new TV and Film production deal.
Levy completed a first-look feature deal with the streaming giant as well as a comprehensive agreement for scripted content, which he will both write and produce. It’s a giant leap for the accomplished writer but one he’ll take with both hands.
Sister’s Stacey Snider and Kate Fenske will also produce alongside Levy for the new feature film. His work in series will start in July 2022, when his current three-year overall deal with ABC Signature ends.
“Netflix offered Schitt’s Creek a second home at just the right time and opened the doors to a whole new audience for us,” said Levy, “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.”
Added 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 will continue to be exclusive to ABC signature until his deal starts in July 2022.
