The Amazing Gayl Pile, which began life as a web series on Sarah Silverman’s online channel Jash, is billed as “one man’s misguided quest to conquer the world of home shopping”.

Pile (Morgan Waters) ekes out a living as a host on the Shop At Home Channel, but his world is turned upside-down when he meets Australian beauty expert J.D. Castlemane (Andy King), who shows Gayl just how fun and dangerous product selling can be.

The third season featured guest performances from Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and 30 Rock’s Jack McBrayer, and was executive produced by Paul Scheer (The League), Brooks Gray (co-creator), Morgan Waters (co-creator), Matt King, Andrew Ferguson, Tinu Sinha, Becca Kinskey and Tom Spriggs.

LaRue Entertainment produces the series and distributes together with the London-based distributor Limonero Films.
