HBO's Angry Boys

A new HBO series features a deaf character. Two weekly half-hour episodes of Angry Boys will air Sundays at 10pm, Eastern. Australian comedian Chris Lilley directed the series and plays some of the many characters. The focus is twin teens - one of whom is deaf (both twins are played by the same character). In the show, Nathan is about to leave the family farm for "deaf college." HBO posted this about the character: Nathan is Daniel's identical twin brother. He suffers from a hearing impairment with only 10 percent hearing and his condition is worsening. He is a bit of a loner and an outcast from Daniel and his gang of friends. Angry Boys is a politically incorrect comedy disguised as a fake documentary.  The show has already aired in Australia and the UK. Below is a sample trailer.
