A new television project focuses on the marijuana industry, putting a large pot dispensary in the spotlight. Deadline.com reports that truTV ordered a pilot for the reality series, with the working title “Medicine Man.”
The show focuses on the family behind the largest single pot dispensary in Colorado, where marijuana has been legal since Jan. 1.
“‘Medicine Man,’ from Tony Krantz’s Flame Ventures and Wilshire Studios, centers on the Williams family behind the Medicine Man Marijuana Dispensary in Colorado, who are a far cry from the stoner stereotypes associated with the people at the center of the legal marijuana industry,” the story reports. “Ten members of the Williams family, spanning three generations, work in the business, which has a strict code of conduct for its employees. The show will chronicle the struggle to build a marijuana dynasty as well as the trials of the Williams’ unusual family life, as they ride the wave of a modern-day green gold rush.”
Said Chris Linn, president and head of programming for truTV: “’Medicine Man’ demonstrates truTV’s commitment to create shows that provide a fun take on the unique subcultures and characters that will resonate with our target audience of young adults. We’re very excited to be the first network to put the new legal marijuana business front and center in a brand new television series.”
