This half hour comedy series was produced by Sig the Goat Ltd. in association with CBC and the participation of Telefilm Canada, and Enterprise Newfoundland and Labrador. The first season had six episodes and the second season had 12. It was a situation comedy based in Newfoundland about a taxi company called Gullage’s. The lead was Bryan Hennessy as Calvin Pope, the straight man to all the odd characters who either worked for the taxi service or used it regularly. He lived with his mother and daughter, while his ex-wife lived next door.
