Atypical

Sam -- an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum - upends his family when he begins his journey of self-discovery for independence, love and acceptance in the new Netflix comedy series with heart, Atypical. Get a glimpse into the funny, heartfelt and heartbreaking moments of the Gardner family in the official trailer for the new series which launches on Netflix Friday, August 11.

Atypical is a coming of age story from the point-of-view of Sam (played by Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum searching for love and independence. While Sam is on his funny and emotional journey of self-discovery, the rest of his family must grapple with change in their own lives while exploring the question: what does it really mean to be "normal"? Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as Sam's mother, Elsa, who is on a life-changing path as her son gains more independence. Michael Rapaport plays Sam's father, Doug, who desires to better connect with and understand his son. Brigette Lundy-Paine plays Sam's scrappy sister, Casey, and Amy Okuda plays his therapist, Julia. 8 episodes have been ordered.
