The Marijuana Show, the first-ever reality show about marijuana launches Season One on Tuesday, November 18th. The new Shark Tank meets The Apprentice Reality-Competition Show profiling a group of ganjapreneur hopefuls gives contestants the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of investors, and then participate in a Boot Camp aka Bud Camp to develop a variety of cannabis technologies and products through mentorship and investment.
“There were so many amazing products presented on The Marijuana Show’s first season where over 200 people auditioned, 22 were called back, and only 10 made the finals. We know viewers will be hooked each week following these ganjapreneurs’ trials and tribulations of turning their visions into reality,” said producer/director Wendy Robbins.
“The online platform of a web series allows for us to provide bite-sized installments as well as the traditional 22-minute weekly episode. Plus we shot with 5 pro cameras in HD in preparation for a network or cable offer. We have an excellent crew and production, and are ahead of schedule, we already have audition dates scheduled for Seasons Two and Three,” said Karen Paull, producer/assistant director.
The web series will be available to watch on http://www.themarijuanashow.com as well as The Marijuana Show’s You Tube Channel. In addition, The Marijuana Show has partnered with Marijuana.com and will feature episodes on the home pages of Marijuana.com, with a total universe reaching millions of viewers.
Marijuana.com has been in operation since 1995 and is owned and operated by Weedmaps.com, the most widely used medical and recreational marijuana dispensary locator in the industry.
Al Olson, managing editor of Marijuana.com states, “We found The Marijuana Show to have excellent content and production quality and we are excited to partner with The Marijuana Show, and what we think will become must-see-TV as the show truly launches the birth of a brand new industry, and we are happy to be partners in this new frontier.” Al Olson is managing editor of Marijuana.com, and is the former senior editor of CNBC, NBC News and Today.
