San Diego Comic-Con fixture Kevin Smith spent the first half of his improvised, 90-minute Hall H talk giving a beat-by-beat account of the heart attack he suffered in February. “I didn’t die, but I was real fucking close,” said the 47-year-old filmmaker, who also used his stage time to promote fundraising for his Rivit TV series, “Hollyweed,” and to energize fans about “Jay & Silent Bob Reboot” (shooting this November).

Smith’s family has a history of cardiac problems: His father “died screaming” during his own heart attack at age 67, while his mother has a stent in one of her arteries.

Watch Kevin Smith’s “Clerks in a weed store” pilot Hollyweed

Back in 2016, Kevin Smith shot a pilot for a workplace comedy entitled Hollyweed, which he describes as “Clerks in a weed store” and sees him starring alongside Donnell Rawlings (Chappelle’s Show) as two potheads working in a cannabis dispensary in Los Angeles.

Hollyweed failed to attract any interest at the time, but it has now been picked up by Rivit TV, which has made the pilot available to watch online for free. Fans are then able to decide whether they would be willing to pay towards a full season, with pledges ranging from $1.99 per episode to $5.99, thus determining if the show makes it to series.

“Two years ago we shot a pilot for a show called Hollyweed and tried to take it out the traditional way but had no luck,” said Smith (via Variety). “Cut to now, and we get to bring it back to life. Thanks to the good folks at Rivit TV,
