Autism comedy series Atypical will receive its UK premiere on Netflix UK on Friday August 11th, when all eight episodes will be available to stream.
Atypical is described as a coming of age story that follows Sam, an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum on his search for love and independence. His funny yet painful journey of self-discovery upends his entire family, forcing them all to grapple with change in their own lives as they all struggle with the central theme: what does it really mean to be normal?
The half-hour comedy series, which was created and penned by Robia Rashad, is produced by Sony Pictures Television and stars Keir Gilchrist (The United States of Tara), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Hateful Eight), Michael Rapaport (Justified), Brigette Lundy-Paine (The Glass Castle) and Amy Okuda (How to Get Away with Murder). Academy Award winning producer Seth Gordon (Baywatch, The Goldbergs, Horrible Bosses, The King of Kong) directed several episodes. Rashid and Gordon serve as executive producers along with Mary Rohlich, with Jennifer Jason Leigh serving as a producer.
