CORNER GAS: SOLD TO WGN

Here's some interesting news. Corner Gas, the situation comedy starring Brent Butt that is a big freaking hit in Canada over on CTV, has been sold to the American market. It was bound to happen, the Americans always want a piece of our hit shows (ie. Trailer Park Boys, SCTV, Kids in the Hall, etc etc).

WGN in Chicago has bought four years worth of reruns. These will be shown nationwide on Superstation WGN starting in 2007. This station is perhaps best known for its coverage of Chicago Cubs games, which are shown pretty much daily during the baseball season.

So get ready for all these Cubbies fans all over America to find out what Saskatchewan is all about. Hey, they might even visit the place. Since when did Saskatchewan become cool?!
