Daniel Levy: Host
'90 per cent of the reason I'm here is to taste the baked goods.'
Daniel Levy began his television career as co-host of MTV Canada's flagship show MTV Live and later co-wrote, co-hosted and co-produced the critically-acclaimed ratings hit The 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.
In 2013, Levy formed Not A Real Company Productions (with his father Eugene Levy and principals Andrew Barnsley and Fred Levy) to produce Schitt's Creek, a half-hour comedy for CBC/ITV.
Levy is the co-creator, executive producer and writer of Schitt's Creek and stars alongside Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Annie Murphy and Chris Elliott. In March 2016, Levy won the Best Writing in a Comedy Series award at the Canadian Screen Awards (CSA) and, as Executive Producer, shared the CSA for Best Comedy. He was also nominated for Lead Actor in a Comedy. Schitt's Creek swept the Canadian Screen Awards, winning nine of a possible 10 categories, including Lead Actress in a Comedy (Catherine O'Hara); Lead Actor in a Comedy (Eugene Levy); Best Direction in a Comedy (Paul Fox); Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Chris Elliott); and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy (Emily Hampshire).
