The i-Word – new BBC comedy written by and starring an inter-abled couple
Written by and starring Jake Sawyers and Emily Nicole Roberts, The i-Word is a brand-new scripted BBC comedy short following the successes of two wannabe influencers, who have set out to become the online world’s favourite inter-abled couple.
Sam (Jake), who is visually impaired, and wheelchair user Ella (Emily) met at the SWATS (South Wales Accessibility Trailblazer awards), when Ella plucked up enough courage to introduce herself to Sam who had not only amassed a million followers on his social accounts that year, but also took home the top prize at the awards.
Sam’s fanbase has been hounding him to find a girlfriend and he realises Ella might be the perfect match for a partnership that could work out particularly well for the both of them.
You can see The i-Word on BBC iPlayer.
