Episode title: “Cycles”
Release date: February 7, 2020 at 11pm
Cast: Ben Sinclair
High Maintenance is an American comedy-drama television and web series created by ex-husband and wife team Ben Sinclair and Katja Blichfeld. The show follows a nameless cannabis deliveryman called The Guy (played by Sinclair) as he delivers his product to clients in New York City. Each episode focuses on a new set of characters as they all procure their cannabis from Sinclair’s character.
High Maintenance originally premiered as a web series on Vimeo on November 11, 2012 and began airing as a television series on HBO on September 16, 2016. The show’s second HBO season premiered on January 19, 2018, and its third on January 20, 2019.
On March 19, 2019, HBO renewed the series for a fourth season which will premiere on February 7, 2020.
The characters are meant to be relevant, regardless of whether or not the viewer engages in similar activities. This web series is shot throughout various neighborhoods in Brooklyn and occasionally Manhattan, and its episodes range from 5 to 20 minutes in length. “Freed of the constraints of thirty-minute or one-hour formulas, the episodes are luxurious and twisty and humane, radiating new ideas about storytelling,” wrote television critic Emily Nussbaum in an article for The New Yorker.
When the series moved to HBO, its episodes expanded to the half-hour format.
Sinclair said that the TV shows Six Feet Under and Party Down were inspirations for the web series.
The talent pool in New York City is rich—and familiar to Blichfeld (who is an Emmy Award-winning casting director of 30 Rock). Each episode cost less than $1,000 to make.
In June 2014, Vimeo announced that the website would provide financial backing for upcoming episodes of original programming via their Vimeo on Demand platform.
Vimeo funded six episodes of High Maintenance before the series was picked up by HBO. Three episodes were released November 11, 2014, and the remaining three on February 5, 2015.
