Watch Impastor


The new American comedy series "Impastor" started its new season with hopes of making viewers laugh at the unique storyline. The first show, cleverly titled Genesis, begins with the background story of main character Buddy Dobbs (Michael Rosenbaum). Having a gambling debt that he is trying to run away from, Buddy comes to the conclusion that his only way out is to jump off a bridge. But, before he can jump, he is stopped by a reverend. The situation turns when the reverend slips and falls of the bridge, resulting in his death. Due to the twist in circumstance, Buddy comes up with the idea to steal the man's identity to change the fate of his own life.

As a new pastor in a small community, Buddy works with fellow associates, including Dora (Sara Rue), Alexa( Mircea Monroe), and Russell (Mike Kosinski). While he has been able to fool his associates, the church president, Alden Schmidt (David Rasche), is keeping a close eye on the new pastor. In attempts to leave his old life behind, he also leaves an ex-girlfriend to clean up his mess.

While previously a low-life scumbag, Buddy is now forced to play the part of a gay pastor. With his crude humor and bad boy personality, he is faced with humorous situations in which he needs to keep his cover. This new series is sure to not only make you laugh, but keep you wanting more.
