Schitt's Creek centers on a formerly filthy rich video store magnate Johnny Rose, his soap star wife Moira, and their two kids, über-hipster son David and socialite daughter Alexis, who suddenly find themselves broke. They are forced to live in Schitt's Creek, a small depressing town they once bought as a joke.
David and Patrick throw an open mic to promote their shop; David gets nervous when Patrick states he will be performing. Johnny and Alexis rebrand the motel, but Stevie fears they are overexpanding. Moira tries to keep secret the gender of the Schitts' new baby.
After the barbecue fiasco, Stevie takes David to a spa for some consoling, but she bought a honeymoon package making things worse. Johnny impresses the Jazzagals with his talents, but Moira doesn't like his joining the group. Alexis tries out a dating app and dates a cute local.
