Crews producing a series for CNN came to Craig on Monday and made an exciting start to the week for Shaun Hadley, of Craig Apothecary.

Although Hadley couldn’t say too much about it because he signed agreements to keep proprietary information about the series to himself until it airs, he did say he’s very excited to be a part of the project.

CNN stringers asked the Craig Daily Press not to photograph any activities of the crew, so as not to release “proprietary information.”

The series, called “High Profits,” will debut on CNN in February. The crew began filming in August and will wrap up in December.

On the YouTube page of the series’ trailer, it says it is a CNN Originals Series produced by Bat Bridge Entertainment, of Austin, Texas.

The series is called “High Profits” and focuses on Brian Rogers and Caitlin McGuire, who intend to be some of Colorado’s biggest marijuana moneymakers.

The crew has followed them to different locations such as Steamboat Springs, Breckenridge, Crested Butte, Oak Creek and Craig.

Hadley said Rogers and McGuire maintain his growing operation in Oak Creek and the crew came by “mainly to see the building and talk about the business.”
