About the show


Move to Fort McMurray with a 2 year plan. What could go wrong?

Rig Pigs is a satirical comedy about living in the boomtown atmosphere of Fort McMurray in the high of the 2008 boom.


After losing everything in a nasty divorce, David moves to Fort McMurray on the advice of his friend Steve, but struggles with the unique challenges he finds once he arrives. Finding a good job, decent housing and dating all have challenges strangely unique to the area that David was not prepared for. Will he stay or go back home?

      Did we mention the extras?

      Laughing on cue, for repeated takes. Dressing far more silly then they were aware. Patiently waiting for camera to be ready for their scenes. They are often overlooked, but are vitally important.
