Night Of Co-Star Joins Chuck Lorre's Netflix Pot Comedy Disjointed

Chuck Lorre clearly has high hopes for Aaron Moten: The sitcom titan has tapped the up-and-coming actor to co-star as Kathy Bates’ son in Netflix’s pot-themed comedy series Disjointed, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Disjointed, from Lorre and ex-Daily Show writer David Javerbaum, is a workplace comedy that finds Oscar winner Bates playing Ruth, a lifelong advocate for legalization who’s finally living her dream as the owner of an L.A.–area cannabis dispensary.

Moten, whose TV work includes recurring roles on Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle and HBO’s current limited series The Night Of, will play the series-regular role of Travis, Ruth’s son who is confident of his mother’s ability to run their shop, but has bigger visions for what the dispensary could one day become.

The cast also includes Australian newbie Dougie Baldwin as one of Ruth’s three “budtenders.”
