What Happened: The financial terms of the pact were not disclosed, although Variety reported it’s “said to be eight figures under competitive circumstances.”
Levy will initially work on a film where he will star, write, direct and produce. No details on this project were released, except to say it would be a romantic comedy.

Why It Happened: The Canadian-based “Schitt’s Creek” debuted in the U.S. in February 2015 on ViacomCBS’ (NASDAQ: VIAC) Pop TV, but made relatively little impact until Netflix started to run the series after its third season. The show’s sixth and final season made Emmy Awards history with a record-breaking 15 nominations and by snagging all seven major comedy awards.
“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 in a statement. “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.”
