Disney is ramping up for the debut of its new streaming platform Disney+ in just a few short months and it’s stacking up the content for fans to get excited about, including a newly announced series starring Marlee Matlin.

According to Deadline, Oscar-winner Matlin is set to star in and produce the new CBS TV Studios series Life and Deaf. The show, which is reportedly in the works to premiere on the Disney+ platform, is a half-hour comedy chronicling the life of Matlin’s longtime interpreter, Jack Jason. It follows the story of a kid living in the 1970s with his deaf parents and all the comedy that comes out of a child having to act as the ears and interpreter for his parents.

No word yet on who else will round out the cast or when the series will debut on the streaming platform. Disney+ is set to roll out on Nov. 12 with a packed slate of Disney classics and new original series.
