High Maintenance enjoyed two successful seasons as an online series before HBO picked up the show. The cable outlet premiered its first season in September 2016, and the new season starts January 19, 2018.
Ahead of the 2016 debut, remix genius Eclectic Method gave fans a furious 90-second taste of High Maintenance at its highest. Co-creator Katja Blichfeld praised the remix online.
At the time, HBO said this of the series: "The half-hour comedy series HIGH MAINTENANCE (six episodes) follows a Brooklyn pot dealer who delivers to clients with neuroses as diverse as the city. The show stars Ben Sinclair as 'The Guy,' a friendly pot dealer whose clients include an eccentric group of characters, revealing the dynamics of their lives. From the unexpected and offbeat to the predictable and mundane, the series provides a glimpse into the daily routines of the customers and how they light things up. Created and written by the married duo of Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, and executive produced by Katja Blichfeld, Russell Gregory and Ben Sinclair."
