Television: A new series and a new season

Keren Margalit created the remarkable television series Yellow Peppers in 2010, about a family who run a farm in the Negev and how they cope when their son is diagnosed with autism. One of the reasons the show worked so well is that it was about the whole family.

Although autism and how it affected everyone was the key plot, it showed that autism was just part of the family’s life. It wasn’t a movie-of-the-week look at finding a solution to a problem but a rich portrait of life in small-town Israel.
