“Deaf U”, produced by actor and supermodel Nyle DiMarco, will premier October 9.
The Gallaudet University students featured in Netflix’s ‘Deaf U’ invite viewers to see life through their eyes, Deadline.com reports.
The new Netflix docuseries, produced by Nyle DiMarco, follows the students’ day-to-day lives at Gallaudet, the famed Washington, D.C. private college for the deaf and hard of hearing.
The students hail from different parts of the country, from the East Coast to the Midwest, and came to Gallaudet with different deaf backgrounds. Some had family members who were also deaf and others lost their hearing at a young age.
New York native Cheyenna Clearbrook said that she joined the show hoping to “break boundaries down for everyone” and redefine what it means to be hard of hearing or deaf.
