The DreamhouseSeries | 2014 | ABC
In this refreshing 6 part series narrated by Adam Hills, 3 young adults with intellectual disabilities fly the nest and move into a new home for 10 weeks. Experiencing life away from parents and learning to live more independently is a dream for all of them. And if it works out, they can stay on and call The Dreamhouse home.
Justin and Sarah have Down syndrome. While Justin is confident and cocky and keen to assert his role as house alpha male, Sarah, is a practising Christian, and more docile and conservative. Kirk, the youngest, is very loud and energetic and hopes to make new friends but his autism means that social relationships can be challenging.Over 10 weeks these three very different people go on a huge learning curve as they explore how to manage a house and how to live with each other. They party, fight, flirt, and above all grow exponentially in the process, and reveal a vibrant new world that is theirs alone.
The Dreamhouse is life changing for Justin, Sarah and Kirk, and also for their parents who watch their children grow in self confidence and flourish in the most unexpected ways that will affect their lives profoundly. Give people the opportunity and watch them flower.
Bursting with humour, conflict and tenderness. The Dreamhouse provides a bold insight into a world rarely seen before on television.
