DENVER, Sept. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Richard Batenburg Jr. and Rick Batenburg — a father and son entrepreneurial team who serve as Chief Executive Officer and Secretary of the Board, respectively, of Clear Cannabis Inc. — will be featured in the upcoming TV series High science.
The programs are produced by a team that includes David McKillop, winner of two Primetime Emmy Awards and creator of several legendary shows. He is among a select group of executives who have successfully directed and programmed several international cable television networks. McKillop was general manager at A&E® and executive producer of duck dynasty, the most-watched non-fiction TV series of all time on US cable television. He also produced critically acclaimed series bates motel, Longmire and memory wars. As head of the History® Channel, McKillop also developed top series such as pawn stars, Ice Road Trucker, American pickers, ax men and swamp people.
McKillop’s latest project, High science, will feature pioneers in the cannabis industry, including both Richard Batenburg Jr., who founded, owned and operated companies in a variety of industries, and Rick Batenburg, who spent his career in venture capital and investment banking. Together, the two growth-oriented cannabis companies provide business acumen, capital strategy and governance across the country, including Bonsai Cultivation and Clear Cannabis Inc.’s legacy brand, The Clear™.
“We are fortunate to have a multi-billion dollar industry – cannabis – taking off and growing right before our eyes. Our team looks forward to capturing the stories of this burgeoning industry and preserving that history for generations to come,” said McKillop.
High science features pioneers in the cannabis industry, ranging from corner shop owners to celebrities and Wall Street players shaping the burgeoning legal cannabis markets. It will contain all the legends, controversy and drama that accompanies the global green rush of a nascent legal cannabis industry. The Batenburgs – who founded and ran investment firm Cliintel Capital, a key investor in Clear Cannabis Inc. – have been cast for five seasons of eight episodes each.
