Schitt’s Creek, a CBC-commissioned comedy series created by and starring Eugene Levy and his son Dan, has landed a U.S. broadcaster.

The series will air on POP, an entertainment channel owned by CBS and Lionsgate (POP is currently known as TVGN, but will be rebranded in 2015). A premiere date for Schitt’s Creek on POP has not yet been set, but it will air some time in early 2015. It is the channel’s first original scripted series.

The CBC also announced Tuesday that it will bow Schitt’s Creek on Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 9 p.m. The first two episodes of the half-hour, 13-episode series will be aired back-to-back on Jan. 13.

Schitt’s Creek stars Annie Murphy and Catherine O’Hara along with Eugene and Dan Levy. The series is produced by Not A Real Company Productions. Executive producers on the series are Eugene and Dan Levy, Andrew Barnsley, Fred Levy and Ben Feigin. The series is distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
