High Noon Entertainment, the prolific Colorado production company, is pitching “Green Man Cannabis” as a reality TV series. The series to be shot locally would follow company founder Christian Hageseth, a leader in the emerging legalized marijuana industry in the U.S. and author of “Big Weed: An Entrepreneur’s High-Stakes Adventures In The Budding Legal Marijuana Business.”
Jim Berger, CEO of High Noon (“Cake Boss,” “All-Star Celebrity Bowling”), said, “the behind-the-scenes world of this Wild West industry is complex and fascinating, and Christian is at the forefront. He’s a dynamic guide into this new world.”
High Noon has the series in development along with Dan Farah’s Farah Films.
“We’re pitching wide to a myriad of top tier cable networks with a multi-episode series targeting both adult males and females,” Berger said, adding, “we plan to shoot the entire first season here in Colorado.”
The series would join a long list of docu- series about Colorado’s adventures in legalizing pot: “High Profits” on CNN, “Pot Barons of Colorado” on MSNBC, “Medicine Man” on TruTV. NBC recently bought the scripted comedy “Buds” for the 2015-16 development cycle, and “Rolling Papers” is a forthcoming film from Mitch Dickman (tracking the Post’s coverage of the issue).
