In the top middle is a black box with white text that reads, “FilmDis White Paper on Disability Representation on Television” At the bottom is another black box with white text that reads, “Examining 250 TV Shows from April 2019 to March 31, 2020.”

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.
