Vimeo has funded its first original programming project with six new episodes of web series “High Maintenance,” a comedy about a pot dealer, set to launch later this year. “High Maintenance,” which debuted on Vimeo last year, follows an unnamed cannabis dealer (Sinclair) as he delivers product to clients with neuroses as diverse as the city they live in.
The new episodes of “High Maintenance” will launch exclusively on Vimeo On Demand with pricing yet to be determined. The first 13 segments can be viewed for free on Vimeo.
Series was created by casting director Katja Blichfeld (“30 Rock”), actor and editor Ben Sinclair (“Delocated,” “30 Rock,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “The Big C”) and manager Russell Gregory at Regarding Entertainment, under the production banner of Janky Clown Prods.
“We’re elated to be working directly with Vimeo to make our series with the creative control a television network would never afford us,” Blichfeld and Sinclair said in a statement. “They are a platform that truly celebrates filmmaking.”
