We liked watching Pitchmen. It was interesting. It was a show about the alleged nobility in shilling, peeking into the life of Billy Mays, that dude who screamed at you to buy stuff you don’t need. We thought it was a double meaning – pitching by selling and the high decimal pitch of the late Mays’ voice. Decent TV, we say.
Anyway, Mays is dead. He’s still pitching, in both meanings of the word, from the grave and now even more ghoulish the show he starred in is getting picked up for another season and ANOTHER Billy Mays (the son) is to be involved.
The Discovery Channel television series that starred the infomercial star Billy Mays will be renewed for a second season, the cable channel has announced, two weeks after he died of a possible heart attack.
Thom Beers, an executive producer, said Wednesday that a group of infomercial hosts might appear in place of Mr. Mays in future episodes of the show.
The first season of “Pitchmen” concluded three days after Mr. Mays died on June 28.
