A&E Slates Docuseries About Adolescents with Tourette’s


A&E Network has set an August 15 premiere for the new six-part docuseries Raising Tourette’s, about families raising adolescents with Tourette Syndrome.

The series follows five families with children ranging in ages from 11 to 17 who have Tourette Syndrome. The show shines a light on the ups and downs these families face. The six-part docuseries will debut on August 15 at 10 p.m., following the season four premiere of the Emmy-winning docuseries Born This Way. Raising Tourette’s is produced by Half Yard Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company, for A&E.

A&E will also premiere the new documentary special Deaf Out Loud, set for September 12 at 8 p.m. Executive produced by Academy Award-winner Marlee Matlin, the special follows three predominantly deaf families as they raise their children in a hearing world. Bunim/Murray Productions is behind the special.
