HBO to broadcast premiere of AUTISM: THE SEQUEL April 28

In 2006, HBO debuted the 2007 Emmy®-winning “Autism: The Musical,” a poignant, heartwarming film that followed five children on the autism spectrum as they wrote and performed their own musical.

We revisit the stars of this musical 12 years later in “Autism: The Sequel” as the original subjects, now in their early 20s, navigate what independence means to them as they manage challenges and triumphs as adults.

Weaving together present-day interviews with footage of the subjects and their families shot 12 years ago, the uplifting short documentary “Autism: The Sequel” debuts April 28 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
