More about Dan Levy:

Daniel Levy is a showrunner, writer, director, producer and actor, best known for his work on one of the most inventive shows on television, Schitt’s Creek, which he co-created with his father Eugene Levy.

In 2013, he formed Not A Real Company Productions with his father and principals Andrew Barnsley and Fred Levy to create Schitt’s Creek, a half-hour single camera comedy for CBC/ITV/Pop. In addition to being the co-creator, showrunner, co-executive producer, and writer of Schitt’s Creek, Levy also stars alongside Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy, and Chris Elliott. In its six-season run, Schitt’s Creek received critical acclaim and garnered a cult following, particularly for its writing, humour and acting. The show has garnered nearly three dozen awards and more than 100 nominations, including 15 Primetime Emmy Award nominations for its sixth and final season, setting a record for most Emmy nominations for a comedy series’ final season. Schitt’s Creek swept all seven major comedy awards, making it the first comedy or drama series to receive all seven awards. Dan himself received Outstanding Comedy Series, writing for a comedy and directing for a comedy series (the last he shared with Andrew Cividino).

Prior to his success with Schitt’s Creek, Dan began his television career co-hosting MTV Canada’s flagship show ‘MTV Live’ and later co-wrote, co-hosted, and co-produced the critically-acclaimed ratings hit ‘The After Show’ and its various incarnations, including ‘The Hills: The After Show’ and ‘The City: Live After Show’. Levy also wrote, produced, and starred in his own Christmas special for MTV, ‘Daniel Levy’s Holi-Do’s & Don’ts’ and co-hosted the MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet, the ‘X-Factor’ pre-show, and national coverage of the Vancouver Olympic Games for CTV. He made his film debut opposite Tina Fey in ‘Admission’.

His most recent “theatrical” release was alongside Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis in Hulu’s ‘Happiest Season’, and he also recently hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ on February 6th, 2021.
