Elizabeth Alderfer (Better Off Single) has been cast as a series regular opposite Kathy Bates in Disjointed, Netflix’s pot-themed workplace multi-camera comedy from Chuck Lorre, former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum and Warner Bros. TV.
Written and executive produced by Lorre and Javerbaum, Disjointed, which has a 20-episode straight-to-series order, stars Bates as Ruth, a lifelong advocate for legalization who’s finally living her dream as the owner of an L.A.-area cannabis dispensary. Joining her are three budtenders, her twenty-something son and a deeply troubled security guard. All of them are more or less constantly high.
Alderfer will play Olivia, a budtender at the dispensary who possesses an expert knowledge of her product. She tells it like it is, and looks at the strains they sell like a top chef would look at their menu.
Alderfer, whose other credits include Orange is the New Black, Forever, Eye Candy, and The Good Wife, is repped by Gersh and Door 24.
