Chuck Lorre-Kathy Bates Marijuana Comedy ‘Disjointed’ Ordered to Series by Netflix

Netflix has given a series order to “Disjointed,” a comedy from Chuck Lorre.

The multi-camera comedy stars Kathy Bates as a lifelong marijuana-legalization advocate who realizes her dream of running a pot dispensary in Los Angeles. Working alongside Bates’s character are her son, three “budtenders” and a security guard. All are high most of the time.

Lorre and David Javerbaum serve as writers and executive producers on the series, which received a 20-episode season-one order, from Chuck Lorre Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

Disjointed” is Lorre’s first non-CBS television show since ABC’s “Dharma & Greg.” He currently has “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” at the broadcast network.

Netflix has found success with its recent push into multi-camera comedies. According to measurement company Symphony Advanced Media, mutli-camera series “Fuller House,” from Warner Horizon, and “The Ranch” are among the service’s most watched original series.

Bates’ most recent television work came in the last two seasons of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology “American Horror Story.” She won an Emmy in 2015 for “American Horror Story: Coven.” She also won a guest-actress Emmy in 2012 for her work on Lorre’s “Two and a Half Men.” She is represented by ICM Partners.
