Netflix Brings Kathy Bates, All the Weed Puns in First ‘Disjointed’ Teaser (Video)

”Disjointed“ is set to premiere on the streaming service on Aug. 25

The first teaser for Kathy Bates’ new Netflix family comedy premiered Thursday, along with an official release date.

Disjointed,” a half-hour sitcom from the streaming service, stars Bates, who owns a Los Angeles cannabis dispensary called Ruth’s Alternative Caring after spending her life rooting for marijuana legalization. She runs the place with her three “budtenders,” her twenty-something year old son, and a troubled security guard.

The series also stars Tone Bell, Aaron Moten, Elizabeth Alderfer, Dougie Baldwin, and Elizabeth Ho.

TheWrap exclusively reported that Lily Mae Harrington would be playing a young version of Bates in the show.

Netflix calls “Disjointed” a “modern twist on the American Dream” adding that it’s a comedy about “the highs, the lows, and half-baked drama of a family-run dispensary.”

The series was created by Chuck Lorre, most famous for “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two and a Half Men,” in which Bates won an Emmy for a guest role in 2012. Former “Daily Show” head writer David Javerbaum also executive produced and co-wrote the sitcom.

“Disjointed” premieres on Netfilx Friday, Aug. 25. Watch the teaser above.
