Just Passing Through is a Canadian comedy series created by Prince Edward Islanders Jeremy Larter, Geoff Read, and Jason Larter. The show has two seasons.

Season 1 follows two rough-and-tumble “cousints” from Prince Edward Island, Terry and Parnell Gallant (Dennis Trainor and Robbie Moses). Terry and Parnell stop in Toronto when their car breaks down while on their way to “get loaded rich” in Alberta. When they realize their cousin(t) Owen lives in Toronto, they decide to crash with him before getting back on the road. But one thing leads to another, and, to Owen’s dismay, Terry and Parnell show no signs of leaving Toronto. Season 1 was primarily shot in PEI with some additional scenes filmed in Toronto. The cast and crew were almost entirely made up of PE Islanders and a few people “from away.”

Season 2 finds Terry and Parnell back on PEI after making big money out West. They drum up a plan to get Owen, along with good friends Alex and Vanessa, to join them for a “PEI pogey summer.” Season 2 introduces the audience to more of the Gallant family, more romance, and more PEI shenanigans. It was shot entirely on PEI in June 2015 with a crew of PEI locals and “come-from-awayers,” and included over 100 speaking roles.

The Globe and Mail’s TV Critic, John Doyle, ranked Just Passing Through #6 on his Top 10 TV List in 2013. Doyle also listed creators Jeremy and Jason Larter and Geoff Read as runners-up for Arts’ Artists of the Year in 2013, second to Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. All episodes are now available at www.justpassingthrough.ca and Youtube.com. See the trailer at youtu.be/wafCI6Zqmyk.
