"This show answers the question — what would the Kardashians do if they woke up one day, completely broke?" Brad Schwartz, president of entertainment and media for Pop, said in a statement. "Not only is this project a clever cultural commentary where the 1 percent is suddenly the 99, but it fits right in the heart of everything we're building at our new network. It's a dream cast, it's hysterically funny, and it's sure to pop."

Schitt's Creek will premiere in early 2015 with 13 half-hour episodes.
