Kathy Bates To Lead Netflix Stoner Comedy

Netflix has ordered a new workplace comedy series from executive producer Chuck Lorre (“The Big Bang Theory,” “Mom,” “Mike & Molly”) which is set to star Academy Award and Emmy winner Kathy Bates.

Warner Bros. Television will produce the half-hour multi-camera comedy which has been ordered straight to series with an initial order of twenty episodes.

Bates will play a lifelong advocate for legalization who’s living her dream as the owner of an L.A.–area cannabis dispensary. Joining her are three budtenders, her twenty-something son and a deeply troubled security guard.

Bates previously won an Emmy for her stint as a guest actress in the Lorre-produced “Two and a Half Men”.
