Vimeo commissions first original content

vimeo-logoVideo website Vimeo has decided to enter the original content market and has commissioned its first series – High Maintenance. The six new episodes follow on from the 13 episodes that are currently available on the site.

“High Maintenance,” a popular Web series that launched in 2013 and follows a cannabis dealer delivering products to clients around the city they live in, will now be available exclusively on Vimeo On Demand. The show has already aired 13 episodes on Vimeo, which are available for free viewing right now. Vimeo has ordered another six episodes to premiere later this year.

The show was created by Katja Blichfield, a casting director for 30 Rock with an Emmy Award to her name, and husband Ben Sinclair, who plays the lead character in High Maintenance and is also the show’s director, writer and producer.

Here is the first episode from the original series.
