The Big Door is based on the novel of the same name by M.O. Walsh which centers on a Deerfield – a small town with a magic grocery store – and the people who live there. Mr. Read is both writing the show and serving as an executive producer. Skydance Television is producing the show alongside CJ ENM/Studio Dragon. It’s the second collaboration between Apple TV+ and Skydance – they are the producing Foundation. Ironically, Apple TV+ comedy hit Ted Lasso has regularly been up against Schitt’s Creek throughout awards season.
