Vimeo premieres first original series – High Maintenance

Vimeo On Demand has premiered its first original content, High maintenance, a six episode series with three instalments available to view now and the remaining three becoming available in 2015.

Created by Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair the show charts the life of a cannabis dealer (Sinclair) and his New York clients, ranging from a harried personal assistant buying weed for her boss to a misunderstood asexual magician and follows the success of an original 13 episode series on Vimeo.

Kerry Trainor, Vimeo chief executive said: “Vimeo is dedicated to inspiring creators to share, publish and sell quality content worldwide Ben and Katja are amazing storytellers-- that’s why we invested in them and we’re excited to celebrate the new episodes released today with fans worldwide.”

Blichfeld added: “Vimeo has given us the opportunity of a lifetime. It is a truly enviable position to be in as a creative professional,” added Sinclair. “It was incredible to have such a personal project supported by such a forward-thinking entity.”
