A new era of weed TV is upon us!
Amazon announced Monday that a new dramedy called Highland,starring Margaret Cho, is in development. The series stars the standup (who is very outspoken about her weed use in her personal life) as a woman who moves back in with her pot dispensary-owning family after spending some time in court-ordered rehab.
Episodes will each be an hour long, with Cho as executive producer and Liz Sarnoff (ofDeadwoodandLost) writing.
Cho’s announcement is the latest in a growing wave of programming that addresses marijuana’s newly legal status in certain states. HBO has High Maintenance, and NBC has ordered a sitcom about a weed dispensary from Adam Scott(Buds).Plus, Roseanne Barr teased a new webseries called She’s So High on YouTube this week.
So get your lighters ready, we’re in for a dank 2016.
