Ordinary Freaks is the show about everyday, ordinary individuals, men and women just like me and you. People that come from ordinary backgrounds, and the FREAK aspects of their life. Why Freak? Because they go against societal norms. They're considered anomalies due to their tendencies to behave in wild and irrational ways, ways that others perceive as unattainable dreams. Episodes will include their stories, the day to day tasks, the adversities they’ve faced, the how-tos, their mission and the plans to fulfilling their dreams!

Welcome to the ordinary freaks!
