Growing Belushi

An all-new season of Growing Belushi premieres Wednesday, January 19 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery. Ain't no mountain high enough for Jim Belushi (According to Jim)! After growing his passion into a successful and bustling business, Jim and his team of farmers are on a mission to rebrand and rebuild their cannabis farm from small and boutique to premium high-end for the masses. In an effort to meet increasing national demand, they're bringing state of the art technology, cultivation methods, new equipment and new facilities to Belushi's Farm - and the results are as promising as they are challenging. It's a season all about regrowth and growth, and we've got high hopes for Belushi's Farm!

This season, the crew is faced with the challenge of farming - weather, mold, pests - and re-growing their unique proprietary strains after they were destroyed last season (blame Jim!). With the help of some friends and familiar faces - including Dan Aykroyd, Larry Joe Campbell (According to Jim), Guy Fieri, and cousin Chris - it's a joint effort to get things back on course and achieve greatness within the competitive world of cannabis.
