One-in-five Americans is living with a disability, yet far too often their stories go untold. Per the GLAAD report "Where We Are on TV," 1.7% of TV roles feature a character with a disability... and of those roles, more than 95% of the characters are portrayed by actors without a disability (Ruderman Family Foundation). Of the top 900 films since 2007, just 2.7% of characters were portrayed as having a disability, according to the USC Annenberg report, "Inequality in 900 Popular Films."
The Magnificent Meyersons follows an ordinary but complicated New York City family as they discover on one extraordinary day that although life - and family - can sometimes shock you... it can also lead to miraculous new places.
"Hilarious and sly... an intellectual's Breakfast at Tiffany's with a jaw droppingly provocative twist."
Written and directed by Evan Oppenheimer (A Little Game; Alchemy; Justice; The Auteur Theory), The Magnificent Meyers features a stellar ensemble cast that includes Kate Mulgrew (the upcoming Star Trek: Prodigy; Orange is the New Black; Star Trek: Voyager; Star Trek: Nemesis), Richard Kind (The Goldbergs; Inside Out; Argo; A Serious Man; A Bug's Life), Shoshannah Stern (Supernatural; This Close; Weeds), Neal Huff (Mare of Easttown; Split; Spotlight; Moonrise Kingdom; Big Daddy), Melissa Errico (Billions; A Gifted Man; Life or Something Like It; Frequency), Daniel Eric Gold (Last Night; Definitely, Maybe; Charlie Wilson's War; War of the Worlds), Lauren Ridloff (The Walking Dead; Eternals; Sound of Metal; If You Could Hear My Own Tune) and Barbara Barrie (Hercules; Breaking Away; Barney Miller).

It's a day in New York City just like any other, as the Meyersons deal with the ordinary concerns and petty annoyances that preoccupy all families. Matriarch Terri (Kate Mulgrew) is an oncologist, whose husband (Richard Kind) abandoned the family years earlier, leaving her to raise overachiever Roland (Ian Kahn); Daphne (Jackie Burns), who struggles with her own marriage; Daniel (Daniel Eric Gold), now a reluctant rabbinical student; and Susie (Shoshannah Stern), an ambitious young real estate agent in a lesbian relationship with Tammy (Lauren Ridloff).
But the Meyersons' lives are suddenly upended by dramatic revelations both personal and universal. Conversations about faith, fate and the meaning of it all that come to a head at a family dinner with an unexpected guest. As memories of their complicated past collide with a new and uncertain future, the Meyersons must navigate lingering heartbreak and shifting alliances as they are forced to reevaluate everything that they thought was true.
