Another Chapter of Success: CTV’s Corner Gas Extends Brand Into Publishing with the Release of Companion Book Tales From Dog River
What does it take to become Canada’s foremost authority on Canada’s most-watched comedy series?
How about interviewing more than 30 people, sifting through thousands of e-mails from fans across the country and re-watching all 50 episodes of Corner Gas dozens of times? That’s just what author Michele Sponagle did when writing Tales from Dog River: The Complete Corner Gas Guide, the official companion book to the hit series from Penguin Canada that hits bookstores nation-wide on Saturday, November 4.
“I love books. I’m a voluptuous reader.” – Brent Leroy
Clocking in at 210 jam-packed pages full of photos, trivia and must-know information about the series, Tales from Dog River celebrates the little show that has become a national television phenomenon. With Corner Gas placing Number 12 on last week’s BBM Nielsen Media Research list of Canada’s Top 30 television programs, the series’ Season Three DVD collection on the national best-seller list (currently No. 2 on Indigo.ca) and a merchandise line generating millions of dollars in sales, the demand for an official guide has been building since the series launched three years ago.
