About Children Ruin Everything TV Show
Created by Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award-winner Kurt Smeaton ("Schitt's Creek"), "Children Ruin Everything" is about living with the worst roommates of all: young children. Astrid (Meaghan Rath) and James (Aaron Abrams) struggle to find a balance between being 'Mom and Dad' to two kids and being who they were before offspring. "Children Ruin Everything" explores the hilarious and varied ways kids can tear down your life and, if you're lucky, replace it with something you have to admit is pretty okay, too.
Colin Davis, Head of Scripted Originals, Roku: "It's finally here! Kurt Smeaton, Chuck Tatham and Mark Montefiore have brought us a heart filled comedy with 'Children Ruin Everything.' This story is universal, endearing and audiences will instantly relate with these characters. As the momentum driving Roku Originals continues, it is beyond exciting not only to share season one with audiences, but to also have the opportunity bring it back for a supersized season two on The Roku Channel."
"Children Ruin Everything" is produced and developed by New Metric Media in association with CTV, with the participation of the Canada Media Fund.

Kurt Smeaton, Creator, "Children Ruin Everything": "We have no doubt that audiences on The Roku Channel will immediately connect with Astrid and James as they navigate the hilarious and surprising ways that having kids changes your life. We can't wait to finally share the series with American audiences and look forward to bringing the talented cast back for more fun and chaos in season two."
