The über-rich Rose family are rudely awakened one morning by an IRS asset-seizure raid.
Once all valuables in the house, and the house itself, have been taken, the family's only option is to move to a tiny, out-of-the-way town because, though Mr. Rose had purchased it as a gag-gift for his son, it's suddenly the only asset left of their lost fortune.
One unpleasant bus ride later, the family finds that the town, called Schitt's Creek, lives up (or down) to both their worst expectations and its own name.
When filthy-rich video store magnate Johnny Rose, his soap star wife Moira, and their two kids - über-hipster son David and socialite daughter Alexis - suddenly find themselves broke, they are forced to live in Schitt's Creek, a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke. With their pampered lives now abandoned, they must confront their new-found poverty and discover what it means to be a family, all within the rural city limits of their new home.
