The new ABC sitcom Speechless is about a mother named Maya DiMeo (Minnie Driver) who will do anything for her family. The family moves around a lot which isn’t easy on any family but particularly difficult for a family with a special-needs child. While Maya enrolls the kids in a new school she also searches for a caregiver for her son JJ (Micah Fowler) who has cerebral palsy. When Maya meets the principal of the new school, Dr. Miller, she’s tempted to move again.
Dr. Miller is portrayed by Marin Hinkle. She’s known for her roles on Madam Secretary (Isabelle), Two and a Half Men (Judith Harper), Deception (Samantha Bowers), Brothers & Sisters (Courtney McCallister), and Once and Again (Judy Brooks), among others. Speechless airs Wednesdays at 8:30pm on ABC.
