Schitt’s Creek’s “architect,” producer Ben Feigin, passed away at the age of 47.
United Talent Agency, the executive producer’s previous workplace, confirmed his passing to Variety and added that he had passed away on Monday (October 24) from pancreatic cancer.
Schitt’s Creek, a Canadian television programme that gained enormous international acclaim and won numerous Emmy Awards for its last season, was credited with having Feigin as one of its primary creators.
Feigin developed and launched the series through his business Equation Unlimited, and he also generated interest for the programme abroad.
In 2020, he won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, and the show’s four leading actors—Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levy, and Annie Murphy—all won acting prizes.

Before Schitt’s Creek, Feigin managed programmes including Friends and The West Wing while working at Warner Bros.
Heidi, Feigin’s wife, and Ellie, their 11-year-old daughter, are left behind.
Eugene and Dan Levy, a father-and-son team, wrote 80 episodes of Schitt’s Creek, which ran from 2015 to 2020.
The wealthy family at the centre of the show is forced to move to a motel in the sleepy village of Schitt’s Creek that they originally bought as a joke after becoming involved in an embezzlement scandal.
Due in large part to Netflix, which syndicated the show abroad, the series had a considerable increase in interest in its final seasons.
With 15, of which it won nine, they shattered the record for the most Emmy nominations a show had ever received in its last season.
