CORNER GAS: ANIMATED Q&A

Posted on December 20th in Home Page, The Blog

Since we announced that Corner Gas was getting rebooted as an animated series, I’ve been getting a lot questions on social media. Mainly, 4 questions in particular. So, I figured I’d answer those 4 most common questions here.

Q: Is the original cast coming back?

A: All the original main cast members are back to reprise their roles, with the exception of Janet Wright, who played Emma. Sadly, she passed away this year. Her family has said that Janet would want Emma to live on, so we are in the process of casting to find the right person to play the voice of Emma.

Q: Will this be available in the States?

A: We will certainly be looking to make a deal with a U.S. broadcaster, so the animated show can be seen, as Frank Sinatra said, “south of the border”.

Q: When will this be available to watch?

A: Our target for the broadcast premier is January 2018 – but who knows? I mean… that’s a LOT of drawing!

Q: Will you be doing the drawing?

A: No. We figured it would probably be best to hire actual animation professionals. Smart, eh? I oversaw the development and design of the characters and locations (the actual designing/drawing of our main cast was done by Josh Mepham, and the other regular characters by Greg Huculak.) and I’ll remain in charge of the creative choices on the show, but I’ll be relying on our animation directors and the good folks at Smiley Guy Studios to bring the pictures to life.

So there you have it. Thanks for your questions and your interest. We’re all excited about diving head first into this project and, we really hope you enjoy it.

Talk again soon.

    DRAWN BACK TO DOG RIVER!!!

    Posted on December 19th in Home Page, The Blog

    Drawn… as in “animated”.  We can now officially announce that we are in production on 13 episodes of a new series, called CORNER GAS: ANIMATED, which will hit the Comedy Network in early 2018 (hopefully January).

    All our regular cast is coming back to voice their characters, with the exception of Janet Wright, who sadly passed away recently.  Her family has told us she would want Emma to live on, so we will be casting to find a new voice to play my character’s long suffering mother, Emma Leroy.

    We made a short sample/demo that everyone involved is really happy with (it really did work out well) and we’re having a hell of a good time writing the new scripts, so we hope you all like the final product.  Feel free to spread the word and tell your friends, family, co-workers, and random strangers.  Again, it should start airing in January of 2018 (but well be talking before then.)

    In the meantime, there’s a super short teaser below, if you want to wet your whistle, or whatever.

    And thanks so much for all your support over the years.  Sincerely.  Honestly.  Truly.
