Web Series 'High Maintenance' Moves To Premium Cable

Home Box Office is now the hot-boxed office. High Maintenance, one of the web's most acclaimed original series, is making the jump to the cable giant.

The series began on the online streaming platform Vimeo, where it ran for six seasons. Unfortunately, the episodes aren't available there now, but they'll reappear this fall on HBO Go, alongside a brand new season.

Each episode of HM focuses on a ubiquitous, sage marijuana dealer known simply as "the guy", and New Yorkers who buy from him. The show's wry, character-based comedy has won it wide acclaim - Pulitzer Prize-winning TV critic Emily Nussbaum called it "luxurious and twisty and humane, radiating new ideas about storytelling."

So keep your eye out for High Maintenance when it hits HBO this fall. It'll fit nicely amongst current comedies like "Girls" and "Veep" - and maybe it'll tide you over until the next season of "Game of Thrones".

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.
