A live-action ABC sitcom, the Speechless TV show stars Minnie Driver, John Ross Bowie, Mason Cook, Michah Fowler, Kyla Kennedy, and Cedric Yarbrough. The cast also includes Marin Hinkle, Jonathan Slavin, McKaley Miller, and David Lengel.
Speechless Renewed for Season Two on ABC
Speechless centers on the DiMeo family. Maya (Driver) and Jimmy (Bowie) are parents to Ray (Cook), Dylan (Kennedy), and teenaged JJ (Fowler), who has cerebral palsy.
