Holly Robinson Peete's reality show to focus on autism journey

March 16, 2016

Actress, author and autism advocate Holly Robinson Peete sat down with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts to talk about her family's new reality show which debuts on Oprah Winfrey's OWN Netowork Saturday, March 19, 2016. "For Peete's Sake," follows Holly and former NFL star Rodney Peete and their three children. The Peete's 18-year-old son R.J. was diagnosed with autism at age 3.

Peete told Good Morning America, "If I had seen a show on TV with a family talking about autism when we got our diagnosis in 2000, I would've had a little bit of hope, maybe a road map - a template to follow."

Watch the full interview above. Peete also discussed her new book, "Same But Different: Teen Life on the Autism Express."
