Our second annual FilmDis Representation on TV study is here! This year we watched 250 shows on 20 networks and 10 streaming services. Each show began airing between April 2019 and March 31, 2020. We found that 218 of the shows featured disability representation, and we have broken that down to discover what kind of disability representation is airing these days! Check out our full study for information on each individual character, statistics on each network, and an analysis of how Hollywood can do better.
