The Vimeo web series High Maintenance, about a Brooklyn marijuana delivery dealer and his colorful clients, is headed to television.
HBO announced Monday that it will produce six new episodes from the wife-and-husband team of Katja Blichfeld (the Emmy-winning 30 Rock casting director) and Ben Sinclair (who stars in the show).
“We have been growing this show organically for three years now, and we are elated to bring it into full maturity at HBO, the gold-standard of both online and televised entertainment,” the pair said in a statement.
The show’s existing 19 episodes will also become available on HBO platforms later this year. “High Maintenance has proven to be one of today’s most highly-acclaimed online comedies,” said Michael Lombardo, the president of HBO Programming. “We are thrilled to bring this sophisticated and clever series to our HBO audience.”
