The popular show is about a suburban soccer mom who becomes a drug dealer to keep up appearances and maintain her family's upper-middle-class lifestyle. Weeds is a satire of modern suburbia and a subversive take on motherhood and the story of an American family.

Jenji Kohan, producer and creator of Weeds
