Kathy Bates, who memorably brought Stephen King’s Annie Wilkes to the screen in Misery, stars as a decidedly more mellow character in Disjointed, a 20-episode comedy series debuting next Friday, August 25, on Netflix.
Bates plays Ruth, “a lifelong advocate for legalization…finally living her dream as the owner of an Los Angeles cannabis dispensary, Ruth’s Alternative Caring.” Ruth’s staff includes “three charismatic ‘budtenders,’ her entrepreneurial twenty-something year old son, and a very troubled security guard.”
If you watch — and listen — to the following trailer, you’ll discover that Disjointed promises to mix a broadcast network style laugh-track with the profanity typical of a pay cable show (just a friendly warning to those easily offended by laugh-tracks).
The series also stars Tone Bell as Carter, Aaron Moten as Travis, Elizabeth Alderfer as Olivia, Dougie Baldwin as Pete and Elizabeth Ho as Jenny.
Disjointed comes from Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre and former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum.
