Last month we reported that Netflix had ordered an 8-episode comedy series produced by Jim Parson’s That’s Wonderful Productions and Warner Bros’ Digital Networks’ Stage 13 about a gay man with cerebral palsy. Now we have the official trailer ahead of the series premiere on April 12.
Special is loosely adapted from star Ryan O’Connell’s book I’m Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves.
The series plotline: “Special is a distinctive and uplifting new series about a gay man, Ryan 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. “
