Nyle Dimarco Developing Comedy About Deaf Man At Spectrum With Daniel Dae Kim’s 3Ad Producing

Nyle Dimarco, the deaf model and actor who won America’s Next Top Model and Dancing with the Stars, has sold a comedy about being a deaf man in America to Spectrum.

Deadline understands that the Charter Communications-backed platform is developing the half-hour project with Daniel Dae Kim’s production company 3Ad and Melrose Placed.

The series, which will star Dimarco, is described as an irreverent comedy centered around his experiences as a charismatic, smart deaf man in modern times. The episodes look to offer funny, character-based storytelling designed to provide a deeper perspective on the experiences of the deaf and hard of hearing communities in America.

Dimarco will executive produce along with 3Ad’s Kim, John Cheng and Tara Bohn and Melrose Placed’s Sami Housman.

Dimarco is best known for his reality TV performances, but he has also starred in series including Switched at Birth, Difficult People and Station 19.
