The new TV show, created by “How I Met Your Mother” alum Robia RashidRobia Rashid, revolves around Sam (played by British actor Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum, who takes a funny, yet painful journey of self-discovery for love and independence.
The clip features Sam in the car with his mother, Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), telling her that he wants to go on a date. “Aren’t you afraid of getting hurt?” – asks him mom, who’s answered first with a joke: “Hum, not unless I date a great white shark.” The teenager says that he understood what she meant and reveals that talking to girls makes him a little nervous, but he’s “getting older” and he “really really” hopes that he’ll get to see boobs, leaving his mother speechless.
Atypical, whose first season will consist of eight episodes, stars also Michael Rapaport as Sam’s father, Brigette Lundy-Paine as Sam’s sister, and Amy Okuda as his therapist.
