Vimeo’s “High Maintenance” took home a prize at this year’s WGA Awards, winning in the Best Short Form New Media — Original category.
The series, created by Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, follows a weed dealer (played by Sinclair) in New York City as he visits and interacts with a diverse cast of clientele. After a successful first season, Vimeo came in to finance a six-episode second season, which it has been rolling out via Vimeo On Demand over the past few months.
At the WGA Awards, “High Maintenance” beat out “Bad Shorts,” “Caper,” “F to the 7th,” and “Vicky and Lysander.”
