Cast Offs: ‘Disabled’ Survivor?

coIt’s bound to be politically incorrect.

It’s put together by the people behind Skins, Shameless and The Thick of It.

But the new E4 show Cast Offs looks like a ripping satire of Survivor with disabled people. It includes ‘dwarfism, cherubism, thalidomide-affected, paraplegic, blind and deaf’ characters.

Officially it is described as “A darkly comic drama series telling the story of six disabled characters sent to a remote British island for a fictional reality TV show.”
