Weed Country And Pot Cops To Grow An Audience On Discovery
Later this month, Discovery is set to take a look into the growing weed industry in California with two brand new series, the self-explanatory Pot Cops and Weed Country. The latter will follow a group of medical marijuana growers working in the Emerald Triangle. The land is located in Northern California, near the boarder of Oregon, and while its name makes the area sound appealing, itís actually a fairly dangerous place, filled with growers, authorities, and quarrels between neighbors.
EW reported the news, also releasing a promo for Weed Country, which shows weed growing as far as the eye can see. While Pot Cops will focus on the law enforcement looking into the burgeoning marijuana industry, Weed Country will deal more in the growers and their passion for the product, as well as their trials and tribulations. The growers are already breaking federal law, and as one guy aptly notes, ďYeah, Iím breaking the law on TV.Ē Whatís breaking the law a little more openly when federal authorities already believe you are breaking the law?
Both new programs will premiere on Wednesday, February 20. Discovery has signed on for six episodes of Weed Country. While we donít know exactly how many episodes of Pot Cops that weíll get to see, Iím guessing it will be a similar number, since the two new reality shows sort-of go hand-in-hand. Pot Cops will premiere February 20 at 9 p.m. ET and Weed Country will air itís first episode later that evening at 10 p.m. ET.
