Marlee Matlin launches deaf reality series on YouTube

April 2, 2010 |  6:13 pm

Marlee Matlin had an idea for a reality show that she hoped would bring some insight into the lives and struggles of deaf people. But while reality TV has brought us wife swappers, party girls, aging rock stars and dieting divas, it seems the television networks weren't ready for something quite that real, entertainment and technology reporter Alex Pham writes in the Company Town blog.

So instead, the hearing-impaired actress who won an Academy Award for her role in "Children of a Lesser God" took her show "My Deaf Family" to Google's YouTube. Pham talks about Matlin's show in the video, below. Click on this link to read Pham's blog post and see a clip from Matlin's YouTube show.
