Top Buzzer was a British sitcom written by Johnny Vaughan, styled as television's first ever "dope opera". It was shown on MTV in 2004 and later repeated on Five. It was released on DVD on 24 October 2005. It revolves around two small-time cannabis dealers, Lee (Stephen Graham) and Sticky (James Lance), and their customers. Sticky fancies himself to be the next Richard Branson, while Lee aspires to be the Malcolm Gluck of 'Superpot'.
The show lasted for one series which included ten episodes.
It has been suggested that Top Buzzer was originally going to be broadcast on BBC Three, but the BBC felt it was a bit risky so created Ideal instead. However, the original pilot for Ideal was shot in the summer of 2002 and the full series was commissioned in 2003, so its creation clearly predated Top Buzzer.
Guest stars on the show included Johnny Vaughan himself, Ricky Grover, Howard Marks, Mackenzie Crook, Sean Lock, Edith Bowman, Iain Lee, Bez, Shaun Ryder, rapper and presenter Xzibit, Tony Hawk and ex So Solid Crew member Asher D.
