Early Findings

TV Shows for the Disabled

Summary of Findings

  • During the initial hour of research, we focused on finding TV shows focused on people with disabilities.
  • While we were able to identify 5 shows, these shows are scarce. Most shows on people with disabilities are either reality shows or docuseries that provide insight into their lives and challenges.
  • It appears as if shows for those with disabilities are underrepresented and networks like BBC have now committed to focusing on this underrepresented segment.
