EUGENE LEVY & CATHERINE O’HARA ON ‘SCHITT’S CREEK’ EMMY TSUNAMI, THE MAGIC OF SECOND CITY & THEIR 45-YEAR SHOW BUSINESS CONNECTION – THE ACTOR’S SIDE

Eugene Levy and O’Hara talk about what this kind of recognition means to them, how the show evolved and developed, getting O’Hara to commit to doing a series in the first place and so much more about the show.

For the first time in the few years I have been hosting my Deadline video series The Actor’s Side, we are featuring not just one star but two in the same interview. Considering the close, 45-plus-year working connection between two of the most famous alumnus from Second City, it made perfect sense to me to invite both Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara for a joint appearance to talk about how their careers have intersected for so many decades, culminating (for now) in perhaps their most acclaimed and honored project, the six seasons of Schitt’s Creek. The final season of Pop TV’s comedy series, which wrapped in April, is nominated for 15 Emmys, including noms for both stars and supporting actors Annie Murphy and Daniel Levy, the latter having landed four personal nominations including writing and directing the show he co-created with his father.

Eugene Levy and O’Hara (coming in from her Canadian summer home) talk about what this kind of recognition means to them, how the show evolved and developed, getting O’Hara to commit to doing a series in the first place and so much more about the show.
