Nyle DiMarco Announces New Documentary Series ‘Deaf U’


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!

Other projects announced by Netflix as part of #ADA30 include new releases and titles already available on the service. They are:

  • Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution (film, out now)
  • Love on the Spectrum (series, out now)
  • Father Soldier Son (film, out now)
  • The Speed Cubers (film, out July 29)
  • Rising Phoenix (film, out August 26)
  • Audible (film, release date TBA)

Check out the trailer containing clips for all seven projects below!

I am a nurse and dedicated nerd from Boston, MA. When I'm not at work, I'm rewatching old favorites like Supernatural or discovering my new obsessions (too many to count!). When not fangirling, I can be found reading, writing, or listening to a true crime podcast. You can find me on Twitter @juleswritesblog for more nerdy nonsense.
