Corner Gas: The TV Show

Corner Gas hit the air in 2004 and was a runaway hit from the start. Dog River became a favourite television destination for fans across Canada and beyond. During its entire six-season run, Corner Gas was the #1 rated scripted series in Canada.

We shut down the pumps in 2009 after 6 seasons and 107 episodes. The series finale made television history when a record-breaking 3 million viewers - a new audience high for Corner Gas and still the largest audience on record for a Canadian scripted television series. We are so excited to announce that the beloved characters of Corner Gas are back, and we're making a MOVIE! We want you to be a part of it, and guess what, you're in the right place!

Corner Gas: The Campaign

We have some really great ways to celebrate the return to Corner Gas. Whether you’re looking for the inside track on production updates, some exclusive swag like limited edition T’s and ball caps, autographed scripts, a chance to visit the set and be in the movie, or even a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hold a private screening of the movie in your local theatre with Brent Butt, it’s all here in our Kickstarter campaign. You can read about all the perks on your right, or check out the road below for more details. Some of our really unique perks have limits; Don’t miss out!

To count down the thirty days of the campaign, and as a special trip down Dog River's Memory Lane, we'll be featuring our Top 30 Dog River Moments! Every day we'll share one of our favourite moments from the show with you. Start watching below, and share your favourite moments in the YouTube comments!

Why Kickstarter?

The best part about this campaign is that we already know we're going to make the movie. Yes, the campaign will help us enhance the movie, but first and foremost, it allows us to give all of our wonderful fans a once-in-a lifetime chance to be a part of the process, and get some awesome, exclusive rewards. The majority of our pledges will go directly towards costs associated with producing the Backers' Club and making and shipping perks.

 

Please note that the fulfillment of perks is restricted to certain countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the USA.

We'd like to thank the following Backers who spotted typos, spelling mistakes, broken links or other bugs in our campaign page: Mike Wikholm, Ken Landry, Carl Cunningham

Risks and challenges

The team behind CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE is the same team that produced 6 seasons and 107 episodes of the television series.

During its entire six-season run, CORNER GAS was the #1 primetime sitcom (Canadian or American) in Canada, maintaining an impressive average audience of 1.4 million viewers over its 107 episode run. The series finale made television history when a record-breaking 3.02 million viewers tuned into the series finale on April 13, 2009. It was a new audience high for CORNER GAS and is still the largest audience on record for a Canadian scripted television series.

The series received over 80 nominations for numerous awards, including an International Emmy nomination. It won seven Gemini Awards including Best Comedy and Best Comedy Ensemble, nine Canadian Comedy Awards, four Writers Guild of Canada Awards, three Directors Guild of Canada Awards and 12 Leos.

It aired in over two dozen countries worldwide and became a Canadian cultural phenomenon, spawning two chart-topping books, sold-out comedy tours, a successful line of clothing and merchandise, a top-selling series of DVDs, a Christmas special and song, dozens of notable guest stars, including two Prime Ministers and a thriving tourist industry in Rouleau, Saskatchewan, where CORNER GAS was filmed on location.

The team has already started pre-production on the film, with production starting in mid June. Their partners are already preparing for a nation-wide release in theatres across Canada this holiday season. CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE is in full swing.
