According to a recent article in Verge, Netflix just announced that it’s going to run a new series called Disjointed, that will feature Kathy Bates as a dispensary owner in Los Angeles.
The show was created by Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory), and has a 20-episode series order for it. Verge writes that the characters on the show will be ‘three of Bates’ “budtender” employees, her adult son, and a security guard, all of whom are “more or less constantly high.”
Lorre is writing and producing the show alongside David Javerbaum, a former writer on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show who also created the popular Twitter account @TheTweetOfGod.’
Bates is best known for her roles in movies such as Misery, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Midnight in Paris. On TV, she’s won an Emmy for her role as Ethel Darling in American Horror Story (2011).
While this show has received a green light for production, there no set premiere date has been announced yet.
