A new show on Amazon about a group of 20-somethings with autism all of whom are played by actors who are on the spectrum themselves is coming soon. 

Rick Glassman, Albert Rutecki and Sue Ann Pien, who play the three roommates, all identify as being on the autism spectrum. In addition, Katims said that “all neurodiverse roles were cast with neurodiverse actors” and “two neurotypical roles were cast with neurodiverse actors.”
