An all new season of Growing Belushi premieres on Discovery Channel April 5. Jim Belushi combines his many artistic talents with an immense passion to build a cannabis business in Oregon. Jim and his ragtag team of farmers are taking his dream and his artisanal Belushi’s Farm and turning it into a national cannabis brand while setting their sights on a bigger goal, global expansion. But, as Discovery audiences have learned, Jim is his own worst enemy. Will he learn from his mistakes and take his cannabis business across the USA and overseas, or will it go up in a cloud of smoke?

Geoff Stults is set to recur this season on ABC’s new series The Company You Keep. He will play the ex of Sarah Wayne Callies’s Birdie and the father of Ollie. 

Wendi McLendon-Covey will star in NBC’s St. Denis Medical pilot. The comedy series is a mockumentary following the staff at a hospital. She previously starred in ABC’s The Goldbergs for ten seasons, which will be ending this season.
