CNN has announced a new original series to join its lineup in 2015.
“High Profits” will introduce viewers to Brian Rogers and Caitlin McGuire, two business-minded, relentless individuals with a plan to franchise marijuana. The eight-part series will grant exclusive access to the couple, owners of the Breckenridge Cannabis Club, and will highlight how the business has grown in the months since Colorado became the first state to legalize the use and sale of recreational marijuana.
Each episode will follow Rogers and McGuire as they manage a chain of retail marijuana stores, one of the largest grow facilities in the state, and work to build their franchise empire while navigating employee issues, customer demands, product testing, complicated taxes, safety concerns and legal and political hurdles.
Series is produced by Bat Bridge Entertainment. “High Profits” joins a lineup of original programming including “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” “This is Life with Lisa Ling,” “Somebody’s Gotta Do It with Mike Rowe” and “The Hunt with John Walsh.”
