Actress Kathy Bates is better known for her work on the big screen, including her Oscar-winning performance in “Misery” and two Oscar-nominated performances, in “Primary Colors” and “About Schmidt,” but her newest project is a sitcom, “Disjointed,” in which she plays a marijuana dealer.
The show, from Chuck Lorre and David Javerbaum, arrives on Netflix Aug. 25.
Bates plays “Ruth, a lifelong advocate for legalization who is finally living her dream as the owner of an Los Angeles cannabis dispensary, Ruth’s Alternative Caring,” Netflix says in a blurb on the show. “Joining her are three charismatic ‘budtenders,’ her entrepreneurial twenty-something-year-old son and a very troubled security guard.”
Along with Bates, the series stars Tone Bell, Aaron Moten, Elizabeth Alderfer, Dougie Baldwin and Elizabeth Ho.
