The show is a multi-camera half-hour, and it has been given a 20-episode order, straight to series. Warner Bros. TV, where Lorre is based, is the studio. Lorre and Javerbaum will write and executive produce.
It’s a reunion for Lorre and Bates, who won an Emmy for a guest starring stint on “Two and a Half Men” in 2012.
The workplace comedy stars Bates as a ‘lifelong advocate for legalization 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 show represents the first streaming platform project for Lorre, whose “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” both air on CBS. Javerbaum’s credits also include the stage play “An Act of God.” Bates, who won the Oscar for “Misery,” also won an Emmy Award for “American Horror Story: Coven.”
