'Blair Witch' star hoping to turn pot-growing story into TV series

Wow! You Grow Girl!

Here’s a new TV series I wouldn’t mind following:

Heather Donahue, who starred in "The Blair Witch Project," is hoping to turn her medical marijuana business into a quirky new TV drama. The actress quit show business to grow marijuana legally in California, and she has written a book, "Grow Girl," about her experiences as a farmer.

The publicity has sparked fresh interest in Donahue, and she's hoping to return to Hollywood as the writer-producer of a new series. She tells, "I would very much like to develop 'Grow Girl' into a television series. ... As a matter of fact, it's something that I am working on right now. I will not be in front of the camera, but I'm creating the series. It's a little bit 'Northern Exposure,' a little bit 'Little House on the Prairie,' but naked with hot tubs! It's sexy, a little bit illicit ... and also wholesome. There is such a wonderful set of characters and so many stories to be told."

Donahue feels the time is right for a good mainstream pot-growing series: "My friend, who is a wonderful writer, actually, sold a pot-lady buddy comedy to Natalie Portman's company called 'Best Buds.'"
