A documentary-style sitcom send-up of expert-based reality "makeover" shows such as Kitchen Nightmares, Bar Rescue, Extreme Home Makeovers, Super Nanny, Hotel Impossible, Hoarders, Catfish and more, “Beyond Help” follows well-meaning but misguided ‘Handy’ Andy Cornwall as he travels the country, bringing his special brand of “help” to various people in need.
Inspired by the reality renovation shows he loves, Andy Cornwall, in the throes of a mid-life crisis, decides to lend his expertise in "helping" to desperate people on the verge of ruin. Problem is; Andy's no expert. A self-proclaimed "Jack of all trades, and master of fun," Andy hires a day-labor cameraman to follow him around and capture a few "success stories" so he can shop his own reality show, "Beyond Help with Handy Andy," to the networks.
Fortunately for Andy, most people who sign up to have their lives changed by a reality show rarely read the fine print. Andy has no budget or any particular expertise, but what he lacks in know-how, social skills and self-awareness, he compensates for with over-confidence and total incompetence, often leaving his victims worse off then they were before Andy's feeble attempts at life-changing improvement.
Look out, America. He’s helping!
