If you already love to 420 stream it, there are about to be two new shows for your roster.
Snoop Dogg‘s Merry Jane announced this weekend that celebrity stoners Seth Rogen and Wiz Khalifa will each be getting their own series with the company. Merry Jane identifies itself as a “cannabis-focused digital media platform,” which means that every milestone it passes is inadvertently historical. They recently received an Emmy nomination for VH1’s Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party—an industry first—and now they’re producing more celebrity content.
According to an announcement, Rogen’s series is called Talking Buds, and “humanizes various strains of cannabis, giving each a personality to creatively explain the effects of the strain when consumed.” Rogen (whose old office at Sony was famously difficult-to-fill because of its lingering “pot stench”) produced a couple episodes of the show already for YouTube, so this deal is a continuation of that series.
Khalifa’s show does not have a title yet, but it will combine “elements of Jackass and American Ninja Warrior, with a weed theme.”
Merry Jane co-founder Ted Chung said he hoped having talented comedians and musicians creating “insightful and engaging programming” for the platform will help “to remove stigmas around cannabis and push for full legalization.”
There is no word yet on the premiere dates for the two shows.
