HBO has picked up the Vimeo pot-dealer webseries “High Maintenance” for six episodes.
The webseries about a Brooklyn pot dealer is created and written by the married duo of Katja Blichfeld (Emmy-winning casting director of “30 Rock”) and Ben Sinclair (“Sisters” and “Big C”), and executive produced by Katja Blichfeld, Russell Gregory and Ben Sinclair.
The series stars Ben Sinclair as “The Guy,” a friendly pot dealer whose clients include an eccentric group of characters.
HBO will make the previous 19 episodes, originally on Vimeo, available later this year.
“High Maintenance” joins a growing number of webseries to make the jump to TV, among them “Broad City,” “Web Therapy” and “Children’s Hospital.”
From HBO’s social media accounts, wishing viewers a “Happy 4/20.”
