Feature a teen character with CIs on Switched at Birth

September 4th, 2013 by | Tags: | 2 Comments »


Switched at Birth writers begin writing season 3 this week. Because many still want to see a teen deaf character who speaks and hears with cochlear implants on the show on semi-regular basis like Travis and Melody, we are doing another campaign to send this request to Lizzy Weiss, the creator of the show. Here is how the campaign will work:

Create a quick video telling Lizzy Weiss you would like to see a semi-regular character who speaks and hears with cochlear implants. If you’re a cochlear implant recipient, let her know too!

Upload the video to Instagram, Vine, YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook.

Share the link to the video here on our page or in e-mail, cochlear@rachelchaikof.com . Please submit the videos by Friday, September 6th.

Once we get the videos, we’ll compile them into one video and share them with Lizzy and all the people who work for the show on Twitter.
