About

Q&A with Matt Herman and Heather Donahue

The High Country is a comedy about friends, freedom, and fucking up in the imploding small-town underworld of Northern California cannabis growers. It’s a world of backyard chickens and dilettante shamanism, molly and meditation, cuddlepuddles and guns, Burning Man and baby mamas. Welcome to the last spasm of the Wild West.

Mark and Leon are moderately educated, marginally skilled, and have a work ethic sufficient for growing pot. But increased legalization and regulation in the Cannabusiness mean it’s only a matter of time before their way of life is over. With the clock ticking, they’re going to have to evolve or die—and fast!

Watching The High Country is best described as drinking a Little House on the Prairie and Breaking Bad smoothie blended in an Always Sunny in Philadelphia Vitamix, as served on the set of Portlandia.

With its roots deep in reality, the series serves up a hot, authentic slice of a subculture that has redefined the good life on its own, very independent terms. The High Country explores what “growing” means in every sense of the word.
