From the Trailer Park Boys Forum:
Trailer Park Boys is a Canadian comedy mockumentary television series created and directed by Mike Clattenburg that focuses on the misadventures of a group of trailer park residents, some of whom are ex-convicts, living in the fictional Sunnyvale Trailer Park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The television series premiered on the Showcase television network in 2001. The final season ended in 2007, and the final episode, “Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys,” premiered as a special on Showcase on December 7, 2008, ending the series. A second film—Countdown to Liquor Day—was released in Canada on September 25, 2009.
Each season revolves around the recurring themes of Ricky, and Julian (and to a lesser extent Bubbles) constantly trying to figure out new ways to get rich, get high, and stay out of jail. Their schemes are often complicated by vindictive trailer park supervisor Jim Lahey, and his perpetually shirtless assistant, Randy, as Ricky and Julian’s incompetence competes with Lahey’s own ineptitude. Though the boys mostly save themselves from being caught, every once in a while their plans fall through, such that each of the early seasons always began with the boys getting out of jail and ended with them being re-incarcerated.
Later seasons changed this formula with the final episode of the season showing that their schemes had been successful, and the boys’ future looking optimistic. The first episode of the following season would then show them sheepishly explaining how everything went wrong for them in the interim, thus bringing the story back to square one.
Each of the characters has their own particular trademark mannerism or trait. For example: Julian is almost never seen without a glass of rum and Coke-on-the-rocks in his hand; Ricky’s speech is often laced with malapropisms and eggcorns; and Bubbles, who wears Coke-bottle glasses and lives in a shed with a bunch of cats. Trailer Park Supervisor Jim Lahey is normally seen intoxicated while carrying a bottle of whiskey and his assistant Randy is almost always shirtless. There are also four constant pairs of characters: Cory and Trevor; Mr. Lahey and Randy; Lucy and Sarah; and J-Roc and T.
The series is consistently shot in a mockumentary style (including the use of long takes), but often the camera crew became engrossed in the plot. On several occasions, the camera and boom mic operators are spoken to by the characters, and often end up becoming directly involved in the action. In one episode, a crew member is shot, and they are also enlisted several times to help the characters when a pair of extra hands is needed. All of this is intended to produce the feeling that these are real events that are happening to real people, when in reality, the show is loosely scripted and much of the dialog is ad-libbed from very basic plot points laid out beforehand.
Furthering the myth that Trailer Park Boys is nonfiction, many of the actors (particularly Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay, Mike Smith and John Dunsworth) often make public appearances without breaking character.
The cinematographic style of the show is split between rough handheld camera work and clearly planned camera work; the latter sometimes involves crane shots and quite clearly pre-arranged fixed-camera shots.

Whatever Happened to Cory and Trevor?
Corey and Trevor’s departure
Michael Jackson (Trevor) was also a production assistant behind the scenes for seasons 2–6. During this time, Michael, as many other actors on the show, was paid minimum scale despite the show’s growing success. Tension grew between the producers (Barrie Dunn and Mike Volpe) and Michael due to poor working conditions and creativity disagreements with the show’s storylines becoming repetitive. Michael notified the writers that he would fulfill his contract up to and including season 6 as he was close friends with the series’ creator Mike Clattenburg. The producers and writers refused to address the issue of Corey and Trevor leaving the show at the end of season 6 even though knowing this for some time beforehand.
So now you know what really happened.
