Gavin Crawford's Wild West is a Canadian television special, which aired on CBC Television in July 2013.

Originally announced as a planned series in 2011,[1] it was left in limbo by funding cuts to the CBC in 2012,[2] and only the pilot was completed although five more unfilmed episodes had been written before the CBC dropped the project.[3] In 2014, Crawford told Toronto's NOW that he has explored the possibility of reviving the series for a different network, although he has not announced firm details to date.[4]

Wild West stars Gavin Crawford as six distinct characters, each representing a different aspect of the society of the Canadian province of Alberta, in a mockumentary format. The characters include:

The special garnered five Canadian Screen Award nominations at the 2nd Canadian Screen Awards, including nods for Best Comedy Series or Program, Best Actor in a Comedy Series or Program (Crawford) and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series or Program (Cheng).[5]
