The DiMeo kids are going into full party mode on the May 3 episode of Speechless (8:30/7:30c, ABC), especially big bro JJ (Micah Fowler). All three siblings head to prom, where JJ bonds with a classmate who is so not into the big dance—and also gets some major upgrades to his wheelchair that make him the life of the party. “Our special effects and prop team worked together to help us rig the lights and the effects onto JJ’s chair, along with the mirror ball activation button just under his wrist,” director Bill Purple says. “It was all controlled via remote controls, while Micah was able to control his chair so he could dance and spin.” With the press of a button, JJ ignites the dance floor, making him, according to Purple, “the hero of the prom.”
