Global: 3 New Episodes of Weed-Centered Web Series 'High Maintenance' Released


Vimeo on Thursday released three new episodes of the heralded cannabis-centered web series "High Maintenance."

Created by married couple Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, the series successfully launched Vimeo on Demand’s first foray into original programming.

"High Maintenance" centers around a cannabis dealer known simply as "The Guy" (Sinclair) who slips in and out of the lives of his clients – an eclectic array of Brooklynites, from the likes of a harried personal assistant buying weed for her boss to a misunderstood asexual magician.

The series has received a bevy of acclaim from prestigious outlets including The New Yorker, The New York Times, The New York Observer, Entertainment Weekly, and Slate (among others).

In this new batch of episodes, "The Guy" delivers to a new set of clients, all who have vastly different motivations – or lack there of – for smoking weed. We also get a glimpse into “The Guy’s” personal life.

The new episodes are available globally and have subtitles translated to German, French, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Hindi, and Japanese, enabling High Maintenance to reach a wider audience than ever before.

Pricing for the series on Vimeo on Demand remains the same as the previous cycle of three episodes: to rent episodes individually, the cost is $1.99 or EUR 2.49. To buy all episodes the cost is $7.99 or EUR 6.49.

The 13 episodes from Season One are available for free at
