WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GrowLife, Inc. (OTCQB:PHOT), a provider of highly effective indoor growing technologies and unique lifestyle brands, is pleased to announce that the GrowLife Productions team is serving as experts for Legit, a new FX Television series featuring popular comedian Jim Jefferies and his experiences in a marijuana lifestyle. GrowLife has been specifically asked as a thought leader in the cannabis industry to ensure that the scenes, setting, and marijuana related icons are authentic.
"It is a distinct privilege to be asked to participate in this production," states GrowLife CEO, Sterling Scott. "First, it confirms our status as a reputable industry leader in this fast-changing marijuana industry but it also simultaneously provides valued exposure for GrowLife directly and indirectly. The more we are seen as an established and trusted, seminal brand in the legal cannabis arena, the less difficult it will be to elegantly expand our product and service lines as new opportunities avail themselves."
Notable comedian Jim Jefferies, made famous by his Comedy Central specials, stars in Legit, which has been given a 12 episode run on the network that brought pop culture stalwarts Sons of Anarchy and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia to viewers. From deep thoughts, to humorous and heartwarming experiences, Jefferies makes his way uniquely through each episode. With positive early reviews, GrowLife and the show's producers are optimistic that the show will be picked-up for another season.
"Lots of shows are coming out that deal with the new-age paradigm of 'stoner-culture' and we wanted to make sure that our core demographic feels in tune with our set design and use of props," explains Legit producer, Paul Bernard. "GrowLife provides that authenticity which lends favorably to the show's humor and plot."
GrowLife's participation in Legit continues the company's continual reach into entertainment and media. Previously, GrowLife has received national media exposure for several of its subsidiary companies and affiliates, including: Hitman Glass, Dragon Chewer grind-tainers, Tweed and Raw rolling papers, t-shirts, and coffee-table books.
