Chuck Lorre, producer of the popular TV comedies “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two and a Half Men,” is working on a new half-hour sitcom that takes place in a legal cannabis dispensary in Colorado.
Lorre’s new show, still untitled, revolves around a group of potheads in a dispensary. The show takes place in Denver, Colorado and comes from Warner Bros. Television.
The show, co-written by Lorre and David Javerbaum of “The Daily Show,” joins Lorre’s other shows “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” on the current TV schedule. It arrives just as Lorre’s other show, “Mike & Molly,” enters its last season on network television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script for the new pot comedy is still being shopped around broadcast networks.
The demand for pot comedies is big and growing. Ganjapreneur previously reported that Margaret Cho is set to star in a marijuana-related sitcom for Amazon Prime called “Highland.” Another show titled “Buds,” developed by Adam and Naomi Scott, is in the works with NBC, while HBO just added six episodes of “High Maintenance” to their lineup.
