Netflix thinks Chuck Lorre and Kathy Bates' weed comedy won't go up in smoke

I have to hand it to Netflix. They've created an empire from the humble beginnings of selling DVDs. They have some of the best shows on television. And they're business sense is impeccable. But sometimes, actually more recently, they've been pulling some dumbass moves. The RanchKong: King of the Apes, and Jessica Jones are just a few of the blemishes on their otherwise flawless record. Now, a Chuck Lorre series is probably joining those ranks. It's a pot dispensary series called Disjointed and already has a 20 episode order. The Hollywood Reporter says Kathy Bates is set to star. Disjointed (sigh...) is written by Lorre and The Daily Show and Late Late Show writer David Javerbaum.

The multicamera comedy has Bates "as a lifelong advocate for marijuana legalization who’s finally living her dream as the owner of a Los Angeles-area cannabis dispensary. Joining her are three 'budtenders,' her twentysomething son and a deeply troubled security guard. All of them are more or less constantly high." Disjointed (ugh...) joins other pot comedies High Maintenance, which moved from Vimeo to HBO -- Amazon's Margaret Cho led Highland (I get it)  and an NBC show from Adam and Naomi Scott named Buds. All of these shows will eventually be followed by a show called Weeds and...nevermind that's already a thing.
