EXCLUSIVE : Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers creator Thom Beers is planting his latest seed in TV ground with a reality series about CBD. Beers is producing Kings of Kush for Vice TV . The series, which launches on the cable network on March 2, follows Anthony “Sully” Sullivan, a celebrity TV pitchman best known as the OxiClean guy, as he launches a new hemp farming venture. Sully took a departure from his 30-year career in selling products on TV when his daughter was born with a rare genetic disorder and needed an alternative to prescription medication. After witnessing the benefits of CBD, he started a 116-acre organic hemp farm and enlisted his friend and TV adventure racer Dave Christian to help, although neither of them knew anything about farming.
