6. The Rose Family’s Purchase Of Schitt’s Creek Was Inspired By Kim Basinger

The concept of the Rose family being compelled to relocate to a town they once purchased as a jest drew inspiration from actress Kim Basinger's acquisition of the town of Braselton, Georgia, for $20 million in 1989.

Eugene Levy explained, "My wife had an idea for a television show about boomers not having money or moving in with their kids. Their situation was described as being up sh–'s creek. It just made us laugh. Then my son Daniel came in with an article one day about an actress, Alec Baldwin's ex-wife (Basinger), who bought a town. She was hoping that film people would come to the town to use it as a location area and she lost a lot of money. The idea of wealthy people buying a town went back to the Schitt's Creek idea."

7. Networks Wanted The Name “Schitt’s” To Be Replaced

During the early stages of development, different networks suggested changing the show's title to avoid the use of the vulgar word. However, the Levys resisted these suggestions, arguing that "Schitt" was a legitimate surname.

However, after Schitt's Creek was ordered to series by the CBC, O'Hara agreed to stay on board.
