Non-scripted first production examines Down syndrome and is set to premiere in March 2019
ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, October 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Award-winning, screen writer and producer, Yvonne Pierre's, "Perfect," is scheduled to premiere on World Down Syndrome Day, March 21, 2019, her publicist announced today.
Down syndrome (Ds) will be the focus of the first season of Perfect. The season will address the world's obsession with perfection.
Ds is a genetic disorder caused when abnormal cell division results in an extra full or partial copy of chromosome 21.
The web series is non-scripted and will be presented in documentary style. Pierre says she chose Down syndrome as the first topic to bring attention to the world's obsession with perfection. Each following season will feature a different focal point with this fixation.
"Through the first season of this project, I am illustrating that individuals with Down syndrome are perfectly, imperfect," explained Pierre.
Yvonne Pierre says that the decision to roll out with Down syndrome as the first topic of the series was easy. Her youngest son was diagnosed with Ds after birth. That ignited her passion for being a proud parent and advocate.
"Yvonne Pierre is a beloved and exceptionally talented writer, producer, and advocate," stated Fran Briggs, Publicist to Yvonne Pierre. "She's creating positive change for those diagnosed with Down syndrome by dynamically recognizing their abilities, contributions, and distinguished achievement. Perfect will be an informational and unforgettable web series for all."
