Levy

The writer-actor-director-producer had a victory lap of a year with “Schitt’s Creek,” the little feel-good show he co-created that snowballed into a smash. Its sixth and final season earned rave reviews, plaudits for its depiction of gay love and 15 Emmy nominations, the most ever given to a comedy’s swan song. And then he stunned the industry by winning a record nine of those statues in 2020. Looking ahead, he’ll develop and produce scripted projects as part of his multi-year overall deal with ABC Studios. Along the way, he has acting gigs in HBO’s quarantine-produced one-off “Coastal Elites” and Hulu’s holiday-themed romantic comedy “Happiest Season.” And of course, “Creek” will grow its audience playing in streaming and syndication windows across Netflix, Comedy Central and U.S. stations.
