High Hopes is a new documentary series that was released on April 20, 2024, on Hulu. Produced by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, the show follows brothers Slava and Mishka, and their employees at their Hollywood-based cannabis dispensary, MMD.

According to the Hulu website, the synopsis for High Hopes reads:

"High Hopes is a workplace reality series following Belarus-born brothers Slava and Mishka, and their stoned crew through the trials and tribulations of taking their cannabis business to new heights. As one of the oldest cannabis dispensaries in Hollywood, MMD attracts a wild mix of weed-loving customers and is a home away from home for their OG employees who work hard and smoke harder!"

It then continues to give a glimpse into the shenanigans in store in the first season:

"This season builds to their biggest day of the year—4.20—as the gang attempts to expand nationwide and release their own top-shelf cannabis brand. Will they find what they’re looking for or will their hopes go up in smoke?"

Kimmel serves as an executive producer on the High Hopes series via his production company Kimmelot, along with Scott Lonker, Ben Steinbauer, Tom Cohen-Laurie and Karl Hollandt.
