There has been a recent call for authenticity in the dramatic arts that involves casting actors who have ‘lived experience’ in the roles they play. The new TV series, “As We See It,” has heeded this call. The theme of this show is not novel; it centers around 3 roommates who share an apartment. However, its execution is unique in that all 3 roommates are not only autistic, but each one is played by an autistic actor. The characters are very well developed, each with their unique charm and challenges. The result is a highly engaging ‘dramedy’ that avoids the autism stereotypes that are often portrayed in the media. Kudos to Amazon!
