Kathy Bates offers 'free joints for everybody!' in Netflix's Disjointed trailer
- TV Show
“Free joints for everybody!”
The trailer for Netflix’s new weed-infused comedy Disjointed features Kathy Bates as Ruth, who introduces herself as “Ruth Whitefeather Feldman, cannabis lawyer, cannabis activist, and just before I opened the door, cannabis user.” Her character runs a weed dispensary in Los Angeles, Ruth’s Alternative Caring.
The trailer mixes multi-cam sitcom with surreal, trippy cartoons. Essentially, everyone is just getting stoned, but we do get one plot detail: Ruth’s son, Travis (Aaron Moten), is convincing her to make their business the “Wal-Mart of cannabis.” She is resistant because she thinks “Wal-Mart is evil,” even though, as Travis points out, she shops there.
Watch the trailer for the 20-episode series from Chuck Lorre and David Javerbaum above. Disjointed premieres on Netflix Aug. 25.
