The nickname comes from an A.V. Club joke about early reports on a new comedy about pot from creator Chuck Lorre, the TV giant at CBS responsible for "Two and a Half Men."Netflix just ordered the new show, called "Disjointed," so this is really happening. Oscar winner Bates will star in a weed comedy.
And to quote the Netflix release, "All of them are more or less constantly high."It's certainly a step away from Bates' more recent television work in "American Horror Story." She probably needs a break from the gruseome explicitness too.
"Disjointed" reteams Bates with Lorre. Bates starred as the ghost of Charlie Harper in a 2012 episode of "Two and a Half Men," a role that earned her an Emmy for oustanding guest actress.The show seems ridiculous on paper, but Bates gives it a much-needed boost of credibility. Plus, it will be fun to see her let loose.
