Schitt's Creek's Dan Levy lands Netflix deal for film and TV

Levy lands 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, according to Variety.

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 which he will star in, write, produce and direct.

No other details of the project have been announced.

Dan said in a statement: "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."

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."

Speaking previously about his post-Schitt's Creek plans, Dan explained: "I want to keep telling stories that mean something to me, and that are potentially joyful. My list of ideas that I've been scratching down over the past six years while I've been doing this show is anything from thrillers to dramas, to other comedies to musicals."
