"The A-Word" (TV show) is a drama series on SundanceTV that is based on the Israeli Keshet and July August Productions drama series, "Yellow Peppers," created and written by Keren Margalit, who is also executive producer on the English-language version.

Dramatic, thought-provoking and lighthearted, "The A-Word" captures an authentic portrait of a contemporary family after their young son is diagnosed with autism. The series tracks the lives of 5-year-old Joe (Max Vento); Joe's parents, Paul (Lee Ingleby, "Our Zoo," "Inspector George Gently") and Alison (Morven Christie, "Grantchester"), who struggle with parenting philosophies; his aunt and uncle, Nicola (Vinette Robinson, "Sherlock") and Steve (Greg McHugh, "Fresh Meat"), who are working through unfaithfulness in their marriage; and his grandfather, Maurice (Chris Eccleston, "The Leftovers," "Fortitude"), a recent widower and the owner of the family brewery.

Season 2

The series returns to find our family two years on, with Joe beginning to make sense of who he is and his place in the world. As he starts to discover his individuality, the adults in his life are forced to question their own identities and relationships. While Joe acts as the unwitting catalyst for change in his family, he may also turn out to be the glue that holds them together.
"The A-Word" is a Fifty Fathoms ("Fortitude") and Keshet UK co-production for BBC One and is executive produced for Fifty Fathoms by Patrick Spence, Peter Bowker and Jenny Frayn, by Sara Johnson and Avi Nir for Keshet and by Lucy Richer for BBC One. Marcus Wilson ("Doctor Who," "Life on Mars") is a producer. The series is written by multiple BAFTA winner and Golden Globe nominee Peter Bowker ("Marvellous," "Blackpool"), and directed by Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty, "Rev"), Dominic Leclerc ("Shameless") and Susan Tully ("Good Cop").
