Kathy Bates will star in a new sitcom from producer Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men) for Netflix.
Disjointed will star Bates (American Horror Story) as a lifelong advocate for the legalisation of pot, who’s finally living her dream as the owner of an L.A.-area cannabis dispensary. Joining her are three “budtenders”, her twenty-something son and a deeply-troubled security guard. All of them are more or less “constantly high.”
The script is co-written by Lorre and David Javerbaum (The Daily Show) as a half-hour multi-cam comedy. It has been ordered straight to series, with an initial order of 20 episodes, produced by Warner Bros. Television.
