Administrative history

Corner Gas was a live-action Canadian comedy television program which was filmed in Saskatchewan and aired on the CTV television network from 2004 to 2009. Corner Gas was produced by Prairie Pants Productions, which was comprised of Virginia Thompson of Vérité Films and 3-35 Productions Inc., a partnership of Brent Butt and David Storey. Corner Gas was CTV’s first original narrative comedy series. The first episode of Corner Gas debuted in January 2004 and quickly became a popular Canadian program. By its second season, it was the most-watched Canadian program in any genre in Canada. Corner Gas was filmed at Regina’s Canada/Saskatchewan Production Studios and on location in Rouleau, Saskatchewan. Over its broadcast run, Corner Gas won numerous awards including six Gemini Awards and nine Canadian Comedy Awards. The show was followed by Corner Gas: The Movie which was released in 2014 as well as Corner Gas Animated which debuted in 2018.

Corner Gas was set in the fictional small town of Dog River, Saskatchewan and starred Saskatchewan comedian Brent Butt as Brent Leroy, the owner and operator of Corner Gas, the local gas station in Dog River. Other main characters on the show included Oscar and Emma Leroy (Eric Peterson and Janet Wright), Lacey Burrows (Gabrielle Miller), Hank Yarbo (Fred Ewanuick), Davis Quinton (Lorne Cardinal), Karen Pelly (Tara Spencer-Nairn), and Wanda Dollard (Nancy Robertson). One of the running features of the program was cameo appearances by high-profile Canadian celebrities.
