Check out promo pics from the series premiere of The Pole season 1 episode 1. In Ep. 101 “Saint Dick,” after a scandal shakes the foundations of the North Pole, Nick struggles to deliver a message of unity.
After a scandal involving “Saint” Nick (Bobby Moynihan) rocks the holly jolly foundations of the North Pole, all hell breaks loose as the future of Christmas turns into a twisted power struggle for the Red Suit. As Nick, the 20th to wear the Suit, struggles with the age-old question of naughty vs. nice, his wife Mrs. Claus, aka Gretchen (Jillian Bell), works to keep the political machine (toy production) afloat. It isn’t easy as they juggle the factory elves, including Nick’s head elf Matilda (Nicole Byer) and political activist Helenor (Sasheer Zamata), as well as parenting two sons – Nick’s mini-me Harry (Sungwon Cho) and the crown prince, Jack (Timothy Simons), who’s not only next in line for the Suit, but also looking to rebrand it. Reporting on all the drama at the Pole? Cocoa (Colin Jost), host of “Morning Cocoa,” the North Pole news program.
“The Pole” is created by Matthew Bass and Theodore Bressman. The series is produced by Yeti Farm Creative and Executive Produced by Mark Gordon.
The Pole and The Summoner premiere back to back today, Wednesday, March 17 starting at 11:15pm on SYFY.
