High Hopes, which launches on April 20, otherwise known as 4.20, a key time or date in marijuana parlance, follows two brothers running their weed business in a new age of legal cannabis in Los Angeles

The six-part series follows Belarus-born brothers Slava and Mishka, and their stoned crew through the trials and tribulations of taking their cannabis business to new heights. As one of the oldest cannabis dispensaries in Hollywood, MMD attracts a wild mix of weed-loving customers and is a home away from home for their OG employees who work hard and smoke harder.  This season builds to their biggest day of the year—4.20—as the gang attempts to expand nationwide and release their own top-shelf cannabis brand. Will they find what they’re looking for or will their hopes go up in smoke?

High Hopes is executive produced by Kimmel, Scott Lonker, Ben Steinbauer, who serves as showrunner, Tim Cohen-Laurie and Karl Hollandt.

It is Kimmel’s latest series for Disney-backed platform or network; his company makes The Prank Panel and Generation Gap for ABC and is behind Live in Front of a Studio Audience.
