‘Schitt’s Creek’ executive producer Ben Feigin dies of cancer at age 47

Oct 26, 2022

Emmy winner, Ben Feigin has died at the age of 47.

 

Feigin, best known for his work as an executive producer of “Schitt’s Creek”, died Monday, October 24.

 

A rep for the producer confirmed his death to The Post.

 

Feigin was instrumental in the success of “Schitt’s Creek” by finding non-traditional financing to sell the Canadian comedy, Deadline reported. He devised the show’s international Live Nation tour and its Netflix documentary, “Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: A Schitt’s Creek Farewell.”

 

Feigin was also the mastermind behind the show’s pop-up immersive experience that sold out around the world in 2019.

 

His awards include an Emmy in 2020 and a Golden Globe and Producers Guild Award the following year.

 

Feigin is survived by his wife, talent agent Heidi Feigin, and their 11-year-old daughter, Ellie.
