Plot Synopsis

SPEECHLESS is a half-hour comedy series that follows Maya DiMeo, a mom on a mission willing to do anything for her husband, Jimmy, and kids Ray, Dylan, and JJ, her eldest son with cerebral palsy. As Maya fights injustices -- both real and imagined -- the family works to make a new home for themselves and searches for just the right person to help give JJ his "voice." The series opens as Maya moves her family to a new, upscale school district when she finds the perfect situation for JJ. While JJ and daughter Dylan are thrilled with the move, middle son Ray is frustrated by the family's tendencies to constantly move, since he feels his needs are second to JJ. Soon, Maya realizes it is not the right situation for JJ and attempts to uproot the family again. But JJ connects with Kenneth, the school's groundskeeper, and asks him to step in as a his caregiver, while Ray manages to convince Maya to give the school another chance.

On Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 8:30pm ET/PT, ABC debuted the winter premiere of SPEECHLESS. In the mid-season premiere, "R-O--ROAD T-R--TRIP," the family goes on an annual impromptu family road trip, but Ray has something in store, which angers Maya when she finds out what it is. But Maya's relentlessness proves to be helpful when she takes control of an emergency situation involving Ray's appendix. Meanwhile, Jimmy attempts to continue his tradition of spending no money on vacation while Dylan becomes anxious after visiting a fortune teller. Back at home, Kenneth has trouble fitting in at school while JJ is away.
