Oscar and Emmy winner Kathy Bates will star in Disjointed, a new Netflix series about a marijuana dispensary owner. It was the mastermind of co-creator and executive producer of numerous CBS hits, including Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, Chuck Lorre. With a initial investment of twenty episodes, the series was the most anticipated comedy spec script of the winter, according to www.Deadline.com.
The series, written by Lorre and former Daily Show head writer/executive producer David Javerbaum, is set in a legal Colorado dispensary. They will apparently spend substantial time focusing on the owners and employees of the dispensary, including a troubled security guard.
It’s not the first time Bates and Lorre have worked together. In 2012, Bates won an Emmy for her guest roll on Two and a Half Men. The role is tailor made for Bates, who has amazing talent and an affinity for comedy, and has appeared on another of Lorre’s TV series, Mike and Molly, ans well as playing a supporting role in the movie The Boss with Melissa McCarthy.
