High Profits follows the owners of Breckenridge Cannabis Club as they build their marijuana business. Brian Rogers and Caitlin McGuire are described by the network as “two business-minded, dream-seeking, relentless visionaries with a plan unlike any other – to franchise marijuana.” The eight-part series will be produced by Austin-based Bat Bridge Entertainment. In the months since Colorado became the first state in the country to legalize the use and sale of recreational marijuana, BCC has grown from a $515,000-a-year medical marijuana dispensary with four employees to a $5 million-a-year business of 30 employees, CNN said, noting that the couple recently bought a competing business in a neighboring resort town. Each one-hour episode of High Profits will examine this booming new industry, following two entrepreneurs as they manage a highly lucrative chain of retail marijuana stores and one of the largest grow facilities in the state — when the product lining their shelves, and pockets, continues to be classified by the federal government as an illegal Schedule 1 drug.
