Netflix Set to Make a Marijuana-Themed Comedy Series

Netflix Disjointed

Netflix has made a 20-episode series order for Disjointed, a marijuana-themed workplace comedy starring award-winning actress Kathy Bates.

Producer Chuck Lorre and writer David Javerbaum are writing and producing the series in which a lifelong advocate for marijuana legalization finally gets to live her dream as the owner of a Los Angeles marijuana dispensary, Deadline reports.

In the series, Bates’ character is joined by three dispensary budtenders, her twentysomething son, and a crazy security guard. And, for the most part, everyone is constantly stoned.

Chuck Lorre Productions is the enterprise behind hit CBS comedies Two and A Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, and Mike & Molly. On board with Lorre is David Javerbaum, an award-winning writer known for his stint on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

The new marijuana series will begin filming soon and is anticipated to air in 2016.
