Netflix has made a 20-episode straight-to-series order for Disjointed, acquiring the pot-themed workplace comedy starring Kathy Bates from Warner Bros TV. CBS mainstay Chuck Lorre and former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum are writing and executive producing the multi-camera series in which the American Horror Story veteran plays a lifelong advocate for legalization who's finally living her dream as the owner of an L.A.-area cannabis dispensary.
It's described as The Big Bang Theory, if the guys were not geniuses but selling weed. In the series, Oscar and Emmy winner Bates' character is joined by three budtenders, her twentysomething son and a deeply troubled security guard. And everyone is more or less constantly high.
