Without a Trace TV Show Features Boy with Autism
Today, Thursday, Feb. 3, CBS’s top-rated drama ‘Without a Trace’ (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT on the CBS Television Network) starring Anthony LaPaglia, Poppy Montgomery, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Enrique Murciano and Eric Close, will feature a storyline in which the FBI team searches for a 12-year-old boy with autism who vanishes from a Manhattan museum while on a school field trip.
In addition to being a very moving and accurate story that depicts
a family with a child affected by autism, as well as some of the varied
traits of the affected child, the actors who play the parents, Christine Tucci
and Vincent Angell, are really married and are themselves the parents of a
3-year-old son with autism. According to Christine and Vincent, this is
probably the most important role of their lives, considering their
connection to the topic, and they applaud the writer of the episode for
the accuracy of their portrayal.
