If there's one constant in this crazy, meaningless world, it's Netflix throwing money at new projects like they can't give the dough away fast enough.
On Wednesday, the streaming giant ordered to series Disjointed, a new comedy from The Big Bang Theory's Chuck Lorre set at an L.A.-based pot dispensary. Oscar and Emmy winner Kathy Bates (American Horror Story) will star as the dispensary's proprietor. The order is for 20 episodes.
The series, which was originally shopped around to the networks before landing at Netflix, is a multi-camera comedy co-written by Lorre and David Javerbaum (The Daily Show). In addition to Bates' pot-shop owner, the workplace comedy will feature the shop's three budtenders, Bates' character's 20-something-year-old son and the shop's security guard. Netflix points out that all characters will be "more or less constantly high."
Disjointed is Netflix's third multi-cam series, the first two being the Ashton Kutcher-led series The Ranch and the wildly successful Fuller House.
There is no premiere date set.
