‘Schitt’s Creek’ Star Annie Murphy Set To Star/Produce Upcoming Comedy Film ‘Witness Protection’

Actress Annie Murphy became a household name after starring in the hit sitcom ‘Schitt’s Creek‘ which found worldwide fame on Netflix.

After starring on the show for all of its six seasons, Murphy has now moved on to another series, Kevin Can F**k Himself. The dark comedy is currently airing on AMC and receiving mixed-to-positive reviews.

But she’s not just a television actress. It’s being reported that Murphy will produce/star in the upcoming comedy film, Witness Protection.

Witness Protection centers on a woman who has always defined herself by her romantic relationships, but when she is forced to enter witness protection, she must try to figure out who she really is for the first time while maintaining her cover and keeping the criminals at bay.

She’ll actually be reuniting with writers Rupinder Gill and David West Read on the project. She previously worked with them on Schitt’s Creek.

The original conceit for the project was developed in-house at Alloy Entertainment, which worked with Murphy to package the project that ultimately sold to MRC Film in a competitive situation. Elysa Dutton and Leslie Morgenstein will produce for Alloy Entertainment, with Sloviter producing for MRC.

No word on when filming is set to begin, but they’ll have to work around Murphy’s schedule, as she’s in high demand right now.
