Nearly three years ago, my friends and I made a pilot for a show called Hollyweed. It wasn’t at all groundbreaking but it was fun to make: essentially, it was CLERKS in a weed store, with Donnell Rawlings and me as the middle-aged knuckleheads behind the counter. The idea was to base the episodes in a medical marijuana dispensary and use Los Angeles as a canvas for our characters, played by Jason Mewes, Ralph Garman, Adam Brody and Frankie Shaw. We shot the pilot in January of 2016 and it turned out better than I’d hoped.
The future was looking bright for Hollyweed - until we ran into a slight speed bump: no network wanted the show. And so like many pilots before it, Hollyweed didn’t become a series - it became a digital file that sat on my laptop, where I’d watch it from time to time as a reminder of what might’ve been, daydreaming of trying again one day. Then I nearly dropped dead of a heart attack and decided one day is today! And now, the good folks at Rivit TV are giving me and my Hollyweed dreams a second chance, as they put the power to green light our little weed sitcom in YOUR hands!
Watch the entire 25 minute pilot FOR FREE and if you like it, help us bring the series to life by pre-buying the next episodes! See the freak show of me trying to act with words and if it remotely amuses you, shower us with the loot to do it again and again! (And if you hate it? Thanks for even sampling my stuff in the first place.)
