Offering a glimpse into the eccentric lives of New Yorkers, High
Maintenance connects the narratives of seemingly unrelated people through
their shared weed dealer. In each episode, The Guy, a fly-on-the-wall
deliveryman played by Ben Sinclair, introduces audiences to a new customer as
he makes routine deliveries. From there, what unfolds are often funny,
sometimes unexpectedly heartfelt stories about strangers in New York City.
After four seasons as a web series, co-creators (and married
couple) Katja Blichfeld, an Emmy-winning casting director, and Sinclair are
taking their comedy to HBO with a brand-new season of six episodes premiering
on Sept. 16. The show’s existing episodes will be available exclusively on HBO
GO/Now starting Sept. 1.

To get new fans caught up on the world of High
Maintenance, Blichfeld and Sinclair are taking audiences behind the scenes
of the show. ET has your exclusive first look at “Stevie” and “Jamie,” the
show’s premiere episodes, which first streamed in 2012.
Very much a DIY experience -- at first -- the couple opens
up about how bare-bones the cast and crew was. “It was real scrappy,” Sinclair
says. “Yeah, we shot it all in a day -- chasing the light,” Blichfeld adds
about filming the first episode.
