The Pop TV comedy "has become the show to emulate when it comes to Canadian producers looking to find success outside of the Great White North," says Deadline's Peter North. "Starting as a small comedy on Canadian public broadcaster, it has become a huge hit in the U.S. and around the world after launching on Pop TV and subsequently Netflix and stands a good chance at this weekend’s Emmys. It is one of a handful of Canadian shows, along with the likes of Nickelodeon’s Paw Patrol, to become as successful as any comedy south of the border. Now, a government-backed scheme has identified six Canadian producers with projects that they hope to replicate this success." ALSO: How to dress like your favorite Schitt's Creek character.
