New NBC Show about a Blind Dad

  • up
The Family Guide

NBC is planning a new show for the fall called The Family Guide. The show follows a family, the Fishers, who are dealing with a common problem: Divorce. But, as the summary explains, the Fishers are not a common family. First of all the dad, Mel Fisher, is blind: "Whether it's chopping down trees, showing his daughter how to drive or playing football with his son, he's never let the fact that he's blind slow him down."

Obviously NBC is planning to portray an active and enthusiastic father who just happens to be blind and I'm sure we all hope they present his blindness in a fair and positive manner.

Kudos to NBC for planning the show... now let's watch them carefully to make sure they do it right!
