You Can’t Ask That

About the Show

Based on the hugely successful unscripted format from ABC Australia, Season 2 of CBC documentary series YOU CAN’T ASK THAT (8x30) continues to confront prejudices and break down taboos in society in an authentic and relatable way. Each episode asks a group of Canadians with different disabilities to respond honestly to the awkward, inappropriate or uncomfortable questions they hear all the time, offering them a platform to speak candidly for themselves. Their answers reflect a range of emotions and challenge preconceived assumptions about life with differences. Topics discussed this season include growing up with a disability, Post-Traumatic Stress Order (PTSD), Deafness, Schizophrenia, Multiple Sclerosis, Bipolar Disorder, Parkinson’s, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. CBC continues to offer the series with Integrated Described Video.

YOU CAN’T ASK THAT Season 2 was filmed in Montreal and Toronto in winter 2019, and is produced by Pixcom Productions for CBC in association with AMI. Jacquelin Bouchard, Sylvie Desrochers, Charles Lafortune, and Nicola Merola are executive producers, Izabel Chevrier is the series producer, and Mariane McGraw is the director of the series. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Entertainment, Factual & Sports; Jennifer Dettman is Executive Director, Unscripted Content; and Michelle McCree is the Executive in Charge of Production.
