Elizabeth Ho (Rake, Melissa & Joey) has been cast as a series regular opposite Kathy Bates in Disjointed, Netflix’s pot-themed multi-camera workplace comedy from Chuck Lorre, former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum and Warner Bros TV. Ho is a late addition to the series. She replaces Jessica Lu, who was originally cast in the role.
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 twentysomething son and a deeply troubled security guard. All of them are more or less constantly high.
Ho will play one of the budtenders, a big-hearted, type-A overachiever trying to medicate herself back to normal. Dougie Baldwin and Elizabeth Alderfer play the other budtenders; Tone Bell also co-stars.
Ho is repped by Stone Manners Salners Agency and managers Cirrincione & Associates.
