Weeds
AIRED:
The producers, director, and cast of Weeds discuss how the show came to be, its social relevance, and marijuana's place in popular culture. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Weeds, a comedy about a suburban widow turned marijuana dealer. Barbara Dixon (director, The Paley Center for Media, Los Angeles) welcomes the audience and introduces Hollywood Reporter's Cynthia Littleton, who moderates the following panelists: creator/writer/executive producer Jenji Kohan; co-executive producer Roberto Benabib; director Lev Spiro; and cast members Justin Kirk (Andy Botwin), Romany Malco (Conrad Shepard), Mary-Louise Parker (Nancy Botwin), Tonye Patano (Heylia James), and Elizabeth Perkins (Celia Hodes). The discussion covers topics such as how the show came about, including how it was pitched and cast, what parts of the show ring true to Kohan's personal background, the show's typical audience member, plotlines for season two, the show's social relevance, and marijuana's place in current popular culture.
