In this critically-acclaimed web series, a nameless cannabis dealer delivers to clients with neuroses as diverse as the city they live in. High Maintenance was created by husband-and-wife team Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair. They produce this (largely self-funded) series in New York with their BFF and manager, Russell Gregory, as Janky Clown Productions.

KATJA BLICHFELD // CO-CREATOR / EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
Katja Blichfeld is an Emmy award-winning casting director (30 Rock). She was born in Long Beach, California and raised on a steady diet of Evangelical Christianity, frikadeller, and television. Katja has called NY home for ten years now, and even though she talks about leaving all the time she probably never will.
BEN SINCLAIR // CO-CREATOR / EXECUTIVE PRODUCER / THE GUY
Ben Sinclair is an actor and editor who has appeared numerous times on television as some incarnation of a wild-eyed man (Delocated, 30 Rock, A Gifted Man, Law & Order: SVU, The Big C, Next Caller). When he’s not beating himself up over losing a NY Lotto commercial, he’s making young Jewesses’ bat mitzvahs look way cooler than they were, through the magic of After Effects.
RUSSELL GREGORY // EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
Russell Gregory is a talent manager and owner of Regarding Entertainment. He reps a select group of actors, writers, and directors in film, theatre, and television. Originally from Tallahassee, his partiality to crafting, coordinating his socks to his bow-ties, and female empowering pop music make him much more at home in nyc.
Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair are represented by CAA, Regarding Entertainment, and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.
