Interview: ‘Annie Murphy’ Talks The Best New Show So Far This Year ‘Schitt’s Creek’


Listen to the interview below. And check out the trailer for the show which premieres Wednesday night.


When filthy-rich video store magnate Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy), his soap star wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara), and their two kids – über-hipster son David (Dan Levy) and socialite daughter Alexis (Annie Murphy) – suddenly find themselves broke, they are forced to live in a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke. With their pampered lives now abandoned, they must confront their newfound poverty and discover what it means to be a family, all within the rural city limits of Schitt’s Creek, their new home. SCHITT’S CREEK is a character-driven, half-hour single-camera comedy co-created by Eugene Levy and Dan Levy.

Premiere: Wednesday, February 11, 2015 at 10:00 PM ET/PT

JOHNNY ROSE (Eugene Levy), 65, ex-filthy rich video store magnate, is proud of his reputation for spending money as fast as he made it. Now, his easy-going attitude and good temperament are tested, as he not only tries to rebuild his family’s financial empire, but his family as well.

MOIRA ROSE (Catherine O’Hara), 55, Johnny’s wife, ex-Soap star, and certifiable snob. She has a penchant for the dramatic that has been heightened exponentially now that she can no longer make headlines by purchasing one-of-a kind luxury bags.

DAVID ROSE (Daniel Levy), 29, Johnny and Moira’s too-cool-for-school, hipster son. Once a fixture on the American avant-garde art scene, thanks primarily to his father’s financial support, David developed a cultural superiority complex that is made no more apparent than in his dealings with the townspeople of Schitt’s Creek.

ALEXIS ROSE (Annie Murphy), 27, Johnny’s daughter. Alexis has lived a charmed life as a jet-setting socialite. She’s dated Sultans, sons of dictators, and a number of playboys named Stavros. She’s fun, adventurous but somewhat oblivious to the needs of others. Despite her résumé of international boyfriends she seems surprisingly at home with the men of Schitt’s Creek.

ROLAND N. SCHITT (Chris Elliot), 50, is a fourth generation Schitt and the Mayor of the town that bears his name. Roland might not be the sharpest tool in the box, but he’s no push over either. He delights in messing with Johnny’s head, his favorite pastime other than eating mac and cheese from his wife’s naval. With beer gut and mullet, Roland is Johnny’s white trash nemesis.
