In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), Netflix is releasing seven films and series celebrating disabled storytellers. Among those projects is Deaf U, a documentary series produced by Nyle DiMarco set to premiere on October 8. Deadline released the synopsis, which states that Deaf U is a
coming-of-age documentary series following a tight-knit group of Deaf students at Gallaudet University, a renowned private college for the deaf and hard of hearing, in Washington, D.C. As the group of friends navigate the high, lows, and hookups of college life together, their stories offer an unprecedented, unfiltered, and often unexpected look inside the Deaf community.
I’m excited to finally announce my Netflix series as an executive producer, with you all!
