Tv Season Info

The first season of the comedy series "High Maintenance" is a continuation of the Web series with the same name, though no previous knowledge is needed to enjoy these episodes. The show follows the adventurous life of a nameless marijuana delivery man played by Ben Sinclair, who's simply referred to as the Guy. In each episode, the Guy delivers his product to a different group of characters, sometimes with unpredictable consequences, allowing the audience to take a peek into different people's lives for a brief moment. In the six-episode season, the Guy meets a jacked-up gym enthusiast, a pre-med student with a religious family, an aspiring writer who convinces the Guy to sit down with her for an interview, some regular customers, and many more.

High Maintenance is still best approached - and savored - as a series of moments. The actors, each one of them excellent and each bringing their game, capture private lives in those moments.

High Maintenance is about a weed-delivery guy, but it's really about so much more than a weed-delivery guy. It's about how we interact with each other and how we live our lives.

High Maintenance exceeds expectations, not only delivering the same loose energy of the earlier seasons, but deepening the DNA of the show with the complicated tools at its disposal.

High Maintenance pulls audiences in by depicting the grinding routine of life, then delighting in the little moments that can still surprise. It's a comedy of human interaction, with a slightly voyeuristic thrill.

High Maintenance is slightly deeper than the high concept suggests, telling the story of NYC's varied inhabitants through the eyes of their shared Crypt Keeper of weed.
