“In creating ‘The Gateway,’ we scoured the world to develop the ultimate experience in sensory deliciousness… a truly arresting visual, audial and mental feast,” said Alex Nahai, a founding 420TV partner. “We hope our viewers have as much fun enjoying these videos as they were for us to create. We also look forward to working with new graphic artists and cinematographers as we expand this content.”
“The Gateway” joins a 420TV launch lineup that includes – among others – such original programs as “In Amsterdam,” in which model, VJ host and TV actress Veronica van Hoogdalem takes viewers to Amsterdam, ground zero of the green movement, for an insider’s view of the exciting cannabis culture there; “Medical Marijuana Miracles,” a provocative mini-documentary series exploring the real-life stories of people (and even pets) whose lives have improved tremendously thanks to the medicinal properties of cannabis; and “Super Slackers,” an animated comedy from longtime director/animator of “The Simpsons” David Silverman.
