Popular comedian Brent Butt returns to small town Saskatchewan to portray the life he would have led had he gotten a real job - pumping gas at Corner Gas. Each episode of Corner Gas delivers a half-hour of comedic voyeurism in a place where everyone knows everyone else's business. The series is set in the fictional town of Dog River Saskatchewan, and focuses on the life (or lack thereof) of gas station owner Brent LeRoy, coffee shop proprietor Lacey Burrows and the folks who populate the area. Dog River is a nice town, but far from the quaint and idyllic little burgs we're used to seeing on TV.
Forty kilometres from nowhere and way beyond normal.

Did You Know?
While its actual location is never mentioned on the show, the fictitious town of Dog River, Saskatchewan has been described by Brent Butt as somewhere between Regina and Saskatoon. It is also said to be within driving distance of the city of Weyburn (which places it closer to Regina than Saskatoon). See more
There aren't enough people working there to run Corner Gas and The Ruby Cafe.
Brent would need at least one other employee than Wanda at the gas station. And Lacey would need at least TWO other employees (one server and another part-time cook) to keep her business open, especially since she doesn't close any day during the week. See more
