Came out this summer under the radar.  Two episodes in, I really like it.  It's sort of in the vein of Speechless and Legit.  If you've seen those, you'll know what I mean.  And I recommend both of those, too.  Especially Legit.  Lundy-Paine is great so far as the sister, and she was in The Glass Castle, too, which I also liked.

Watched the entire season last summer.  Started off stronger for me than it finished, as I recall, but some interesting moments.  Would probably give a second season a try.
