[VIDEO] The Cast from Mary + Jane on Why It Isn’t Your Typical Stoner Comedy
"These are two very active, creative women."
From the title, Mary + Jane, seems like just another comedy about stoners—only with women. While the show does center on a pair of “ganja-prenuers” trying to make it in the world, its interesting female characters give it the added edge to set it apart from others like it. At the center of the story are a polygamous libertine named Jordan and an ex-blogger named Paige who start their own marijuana delivery service. It offers up similar girl power sentiments as Broad City, but this one is set on the West Coast in Los Angeles.
I got to speak with stars Scout Durwood and Jessica Rothe about their complex roles and why the show is more than just weed. “This isn’t your typical stoner show where people get high and sit on the couch and do nothing. These are two very active, creative women,” Rothe explained. They’ll need to rely on that creativity to make it against stiff competition from plenty of other businesses in the area.
You can catch Durwood and Rothe in action on MTV, Monday nights at 10 pm. ET. Episodes are available to stream here.
