In the early next year, we get to see a new upcoming TV series that will portray the people with autism called As We See It.
Just like Atypical, As We See It will revolve around a group of people with autism. The showrunner of the series, Jason Katims—who is popular for his football drama Friday Night Lights and Parenthood—will be the executive producer, alongside Jeni Mulein, Danna Stern, Dana Idisis and Yuval Shafferman, and Udi Segal. Meanwhile, Jesse Peretz will direct and executively produce the first episode of the show.
Created by Dana Idisis and Yuval Shafferman, As We See it is produced by True Jack Productions, Universal Television, Israel’s yes Studios, and Amazon Studios.
Bringing up the topic of autism is getting more and more popular in the Hollywood industry, not to mention many shows that highlight the marginalized group.
As We See It pretty much will follow the story of a group of people with autism that try to survive and thrive in the cruel world. Struggling with relationship, career, and other dramas, they are trying to live just like other people, and show how they are truly special and precious.
Considering how the show will be very much inspirational and full of motivation—as well as entertaining—we can expect that the show will receive positive feedbacks. But we will find it out once the show has been released.
