WASHINGTON, April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aboveboard Productions today announced the April 20th release of their weed-centric comedy "East Coast Grow". The DC-based canna-comedy will launch with a teaser on 4/20 and the first episode launches on www.eastcoastgrow.tv on April 22nd. The remaining web-based episodes will be released throughout the month of May on a weekly basis.
"This is an incredible opportunity to show what happens when an underground industry suddenly becomes legitimized, and to explore the real-life challenges that go on behind the scenes in the cannabis industry," explains writer/director Amy Tasillo.
"I've been working in the cannabis industry for over 15 years, and being able to co-create and develop a story that's so close to my personal experiences is a long-time goal of mine. To do so with my life partner is trichomes on the bud," adds co-creator/producer Matt Doherty.
East Coast Grow taps into the unique circumstances surrounding DC's cannabis culture. As the first East Coast jurisdiction to legalize recreational cannabis use, DC's policies are heavily influenced by Congressional authority over the city. The series follows the experiences of industry professionals navigating the gray area of the law--like marijuana being a federal crime--as they attempt to build a thriving industry.
The trailer for the series can be viewed at www.eastcoastgrow.tv and a press kit with creator/cast bios, etc. is available here.
Complete press screeners are available upon request.
