Netflix let Chuck Lorre make another rotten sitcom, and here’s the trailer

For better or worse, Netflix has been staunchly egalitarian in building their original series empire. Not content to merely hit the highs of premium cable, they’ve also stomped around in the multi-camera slop of broadcast sitcoms, resulting in the likes of Fuller House and The Ranch. Now, to the brightly-lit muck of the latter category we can add Disjointed, the latest canned laughter-punctuated comedy from Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre. Roughly in About Schmidt mode, Kathy Bates stars as Ruth Whitefeather Feldman, a hippy marijuana advocate who’s finally getting to open her own legal dispensary in Los Angeles. Have a look at the first trailer above. You can find out whether it’s maybe funnier if you’re stoned when the full series premieres August 25.
