Based on Ryan O’Connell’s 2015 memoir-manifesto, the bite-sized 15-minute comedy series sees O’Connell play a semi-autobiographical version of himself as he navigates moving out of his mom’s house, interning at a hilariously ruthless viral media company, and setting out on his own for the first time in his life. “Special” has the potential to set a significant standard in disability representation.
