Actor/Model Nyle DiMarco is Giving Us the Deaf TV Show of Our Dreams | Femestella

While Hollywood is facing a new reckoning concerning how it handles representation, some actors are taking advantage of the tumult to create opportunities for themselves. That can be said about the male model and actor Nyle DiMarco, who has a comedy series based about his life as a deaf man in development.

The show, which will air on Spectrum, stars DiMarco in what has been described as an “irreverent comedy” that focuses on his life as a charming, intelligent deaf man in the present day. The episodes are said to provide “funny, character-based storytelling designed to provide a deeper perspective on the experiences of the deaf and hard of hearing communities in America.”
