Why did the Rose family move to ‘Schitt’s Creek’?
Years ago, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) had invested his entire savings of two thousand dollars into a video rental business called Rose Video. His business venture expanded over the years and became one of the most successful and largest video rental store companies in North America. It made Johnny Rose one of the richest businessmen. During this time, Johnny also met his wife, Moira (Catherina O’Hara), at a Rose Video store opening. Moira Rose, who formerly starred as Vivien Blake on Sunrise Bay, a once-popular daytime soap opera, earned both fame and money. This made the Rose family wealthier as well as gave them minor celebrity status. Together, Johnny and Moira had two children David (Daniel Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy).
After decades of working at the Rose Video, Johnny had to quit his role as the CEO of Rose Video. He was informed that his business manager, Eli, had been embezzling money from his company for years instead of paying taxes. The government was left with no choice but to repossess all of his assets. Only the town of Schitt’s Creek, that he jokingly bought for David as a birthday present, was left out of the assets.
