‘Schitt’s Creek’ executive producer Ben Feigin dead at 47

Emmy winner Ben Feigin — best known for his work as an executive producer of “Schitt’s Creek” — has died. He was 47.

A rep for the producer confirmed to The Post that Feigin died Monday of pancreatic cancer.

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.

“Schitt’s Creek” ran for six seasons.

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

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

“Schitt’s Creek” ran for six seasons, from 2015 to 2020. The show’s executive producers include its stars Dan and Eugene Levy.

The Post has reached out to reps for the Levys for comment.
