DESCRIPTION:
(from SundanceTV's press release, April 2017) SundanceTV today announced that production has commenced on the second season of "The A Word," the critically-acclaimed family drama from Keshet International, and will premiere on the network in fall 2017. The series is filming in the Lake District and at Manchester's Space Project in the U.K.. The first season of the Fifty Fathoms and Keshet UK co-production for BBC One debuted in 2016 to rave reviews in both the U.K. and U.S. The story picks up two years from the end of season one, and Joe (Max Vento) is changing. Now age seven, he has begun to look at the world and find he doesn't always fit in. Writer Peter Bowker explains, "'Autistic' is a word Joe has heard but can't yet understand. 'Different' is what he feels, and fears it might be something bad. It's up to the whole family to help Joe make sense of who he is and his place in the world. But to do that, they must first be honest about themselves." The 6-part drama revisits the funny, messy, mixed-up lives of the Hughes and Scott families as they struggle to do their best as parents, care givers, lovers . . . and to work out what's really important in the face of nothing ever feeling normal.
