Netflix gets 'Atypical' with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Michael Rapaport

As Netflix grows, so will its acquisitions. Soon enough, the service will be $15 but only consist of originals. If it's still worth it or not is up to you (it probably will be; look at HBO Now). The streaming service continues to bulk up its catalog with the purchase of Atypical starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Rapaport, and Keir Gilchrist. The Hollywood Report says the show comes from Robia Rashid, producer and writer of great shows like The Goldberg and How I Met Your Mother, and she will work with Seth Gordon who will direct the pilot and serve as EP.. The story will follow Gilchrist as Sam, an 18 year old sitting on the autistic spectrum who is searching for love and independence. The show follows his family -- including his parents played by Rapaport and Leigh -- as they try to figure out what's normal in life.
