Schmigadoon! About Story

A couple on a backpacking trip discover a magical town called Schmigadoon which is in a Golden Age musical and find out they can not leave until they find true love. The title and concept is a parody of the 1947 Broadway musical Brigadoon.

Cinco Paul had the idea for the show over 20 years ago but at the time it was two men who stumble upon a musical. According to him when it has changed to “a couple who are stuck there until they can find true love” it really clicked for him. Both Paul and Cecily Strong stated that the show does not require any knowledge of the musicals and will work with audiences who are not familiar with them.

Who is behind the Schmigadoon! series?

This new musical comedy series is executive produced by Lorne Michaels. Hailing from Broadway Video and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, Schmigadoon! is co-created by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. Paul serves as showrunner and wrote all of the original songs for the series. Barry Sonnenfeld directs and executive produces.
