HITS FROM THE BONG

GQ (Australia) - - THE SOURCE -

‘Pick it, pack it/fire it up, come along…’ sang Sen Dog a while back. And clearly cer­tain LA stu­dio ex­ecs have had Cy­press Hill on high ro­ta­tion with sev­eral pro­duc­ers scram­bling to de­liver po­tent, weed-in­fused small-screen con­tent this year. Be­yond the on­go­ing bril­liance of High Main­te­nance and its march into the main­stream, Kevin ‘ Mall­rats isn’t shit’ Smith’s re­cently wrapped on an­tic­i­pated com­edy se­ries Hol­ly­weed, set in an LA dis­pen­sary, while Two and a Half Men’s Chuck Lorre is shop­ping about an un­ti­tled pot com­edy set in a Colorado dis­pen­sary. It’s the same set­ting as planned se­ries Buds, which has cer­tain com­mit­ments from NBC, while Ama­zon’s in­creased de­vel­op­ment slate sees High­land, star­ring Mar­garet Cho, also set for de­liv­ery. Now, pass the spliff (and turn to p172 to read about Aus­tralia’s bur­geon­ing ‘le­gal’ mar­i­juana in­dus­try).
