The Amazing Gayl Pile

About the Show

THE AMAZING GAYL PILE is one man's misguided quest to conquer the world of home shopping. Gayl Pile (Morgan Waters) finds himself stuck in the daily grind as a host on the Shop-At-Home-Channel in Hamilton, ON. With a forced smile, he engages in cutesy banter with product sellers as they hock their revolutionary gadgets, miracle remedies and on-trend ladies wear to TV viewers.​

Gayl's world gets turned upside down when he meets charismatic Australian beauty expert, JD Castlemane (Andy King), who shows Gayl just how fun, sexy, and dangerous product selling can be. Under JD's spell, Gayl dreams of making it big with a product line of his very own. But for Gayl, success won't come easy. The station manager, Darron (Leo Scherman), treats Gayl like a red-headed step-child. On-air fashion model, Renee (Inessa Frantowski), plots to destroy his career. Christian merchandise vendor, Reverend Dave (Brooks Gray), offers nothing but confusing biblical anecdotes. Worst of all, Gayl's new Australian "mate" turns out to be a depraved sociopath.​

Does Gayl have what it takes to make it to the top? Not really. But in a world where talentless egomaniacs get rich selling crap on TV, anything can happen.​

Three consecutive seasons will launch beginning in summer 2016. The series features cameos from Paul Scheer (The League), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), June Diane Raphael (Grace and Frankie, Burning Love), Scott Thompson (Kids in the Hall), Rich Fulcher (The Mighty Boosh) and Jon Daly (Kroll Show).​
