Dan Levy dislikes 'Schitt's Creek's most famous tagline. Here's why
Schitt's Creek was loved for its humor quotient, among other things, and like any light-hearted show, this one had pretty popular punchlines, too. One such was, "Ew, David," which Alexis Rose (Annie Murphy), David's (Dan Levy) sister, uttered whenever she faced any situation. And, Levy is not quite fond of that catchphrase and he elaborated on the "why" on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
The punchline 'will haunt' Levy forever, he says
The Emmy awardee admits that particular punchline "will haunt me for the rest of my life." While talking to Kimmel he said, "It's resulted in a sort of tagline that I think will haunt me for the rest of my life. 'Ew' is not necessarily something you want screamed at you in your most vulnerable time." Now that sounds like a pretty logical observation.
'Schitt's Creek' had conquered the 72nd Emmy Awards
Even though Levy has his reservations about that catchphrase, it will stay. And all credit (?) for this goes to the beautifully crafted Schitt's Creek. In fact, at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, the Canadian sitcom had swept all seven major comedy awards. Produced by Levy and his father Eugene, it was touted as the ultimate celebration of love. Season six was its last.
Read our prediction for 'Schitt's Creek' season seven
Schitt's Creek may not return for a seventh season but we have made a prediction of its plotline anyway. We think makers can further explore Rose-Patrick Brewer's life together, while Alexis may finally find love in Ted. How about Moira Rose (Catherine O'Hara) focusing on her acting career after shifting to California with Johnny Rose (Eugene)? We seriously hope the makers read this.
Levy is currently busy with 'The Big Brunch'
Separately, Levy is busy with a bunch of interesting projects. In November last year, he teamed up with Boardwalk Pictures for The Big Brunch. The "friendly competition" show will "celebrate the underdog of meals...BRUNCH!" as per its website. Last September, Levy had also signed an overall deal with the streaming platform Netflix to write and back scripted content across TV and films.
