No comedy about marijuana consumption is complete without the Kings of Cannabis, the Princes of Pot.
Cheech and Chong, the comedy duo of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, make a cameo appearance this season on Disjointed, a new multi-camera sitcom that begins streaming today on Netflix.
Created by uber-producer Chuck Lorre and David Javerbaum, Disjointed stars Kathy Bates as an old-time hippie and advocate of legalized marijuana who runs a dispensary in Los Angeles with her son and a team of “bud-tenders.”
In an interview this month with EW, Bates said her new show was “like no other sitcom you’ve ever seen” and describes her character Ruth Whitefeather Feldman as a “really cool lady.”
“It’s madcap,” says Bates. “When Ruth was a teenager, she probably had a friend who was ill and she began to see actual medicinal benefits of dope. She’s worked tirelessly to legalize pot because she believes so fervently in its ability to heal people. That‘s Ruth at her core. She really is an inveterate hippie.”
Disjointed also stars Elizabeth Ho as Jenny, Tone Bell as Carter, and Elizabeth Alderfer as Olivia. Netflix ordered 20 episodes of the comedy; the first 10 are available on the streaming service now.
