Truth Be Told star Tone Bell 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.
Bell will play Carter, the new security guard at Ruth’s dispensary, a military veteran who served in Afghanistan. Dougie Baldwin and Jessica Lu were recently cast as budtenders.
Bell, who recently did an arc on The Flash, is repped by Innovative Artists, Black Box Management and attorney Robby Koch at Hansen Jacobson.
