HBO picks up pot-dealer web series 'High Maintenance'

Posted on


HBO is in the dealing mood.

The network announced today that web comedy series High Maintenance, which follows a Brooklyn pot dealer (Ben Sinclair) with an eccentric group of clients, will be coming to HBO for six new episodes. 

High Maintenance has proven to be one of today’s most highly-acclaimed online comedies,” says president of HBO programming Michael Lombardo. “We are thrilled to bring this sophisticated and clever series to our HBO audience.”

The series, which premiered on Vimeo, counts Hannibal Buress (Broad City) and Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) among its lineup of previous guest stars. Created and written by married duo Katja Blichfeld (30 Rock) and Ben Sinclair (Sisters, The Big C), it is executive produced by Blichfeld, Sinclair, and Russell Gregory.

In addition to six new episodes, HBO is also making it possible for viewers to catch up on what they’ve missed: The previous 19 episodes, which debuted on Vimeo, will be available later this year on HBO, HBO NOW and HBO GO.
