Comedy series Special will premiere on Netflix UK on Friday April 12th, it has been announced.
Special follows Ryan, a gay man with mild cerebral palsy who decides to rewrite his identity and finally go after the life he wants. After years of dead-end internships, working in his pajamas as a blogger and communicating mostly via text, Ryan eventually figured out how to take his life from bleak to chic and began limping towards adulthood.
The offbeat comedy series, which is based on series Ryan O’Connell’s memoir I’m Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves, is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Jim Parsons’ That’s Wonderful, and Stage 13 and stars Ryan O’Connell, Jessica Hecht, Punam Patel, Marla Mindelle, Augustus Prew, and Patrick Fabian. O’Connell also wrote the series and serves as an executive producer alongside Jim Parsons, Eric Norsoph, Todd Spiewak and Anna Dokoza. The show’s first season consists of eight episodes.
