If you're feeling beaten down by these divisive days of racism, cruelty and bigotry, maybe you're in need a dose of a heartwarming comedy drama to lift your spirits.

Netflix has just the answer with their new coming-of-age dramedy, Atypical, about an autistic teenage boy dealing with high school, unrequited love and everyday life.

Keir Gilchrist stars as 18-year-old 'Sam Gardner' obsessed with Antarctica (hence the penguins), whilst Jennifer Jason Leigh plays his mother, Michael Rapaport his dad and Brigette Lundy-Paine as his younger sister.

These Atypical series launch billboards were snapped along the Sunset Strip on August 8, 2017.

Other comedies have featured developmental, sensory and physical disabilities to help educate, raise awareness and entertain in the past, for examples check out these billboards for Cerebral Palsy sitcom Speechless, these Growing Up Fisher billboards about a family with a blind dad and this billboard for The Michael J. Fox Show which is a family comedy about living with Parkinson's disease.

People can be at varying stages on the autism spectrum and this show focuses on just one perspective of the disorder, but kudos for the series for bringing us a comedy about a different kind of family.
