Grass has an ensemble cast of two dozen characters including the dispensary's dysfunctional staff, the owner's mother, who runs the local pharma, Holy Rollers who don't think there's anything holy about rolling j's, two-faced politicians, including the state senator engaged to the local news anchor, Candi Kuntz, who is covering the story 'til she inadvertantly becomes it, when she jumps from a news copter before it crashes, momentarily forgetting that she went to work commando, giving everybody with an i-phone down below the chance to catch her tattoo of a lollipop with the words "lick me" inked around it! Stay tuned to watch the fall out when Candi's previously private parts go viral. And stay tuned to see what happens when an MS patient shows up at the dispensary and meets a daughter he never knew existed.
Grass got its start as a reading at NYWIFT and features NYWIFT member Dawn Young as pharma CEO Blue Wilson. Before writing Grass, Meredith spent almost 20 years writing shows for CBS/NBC where she received 6 Emmy noms and a WGA award. Grass just placed in the finals of the Screencraft TV Pilot Launch Contest and has been submitted to Tribeca N.O.W. She is currently writing more webisodes with Andrew Schub, Jerrod Brito and Brandon Lang.
