I really like Jodi from the L Word played by Marlee Matlin. Her character is Deaf and she is the only Deaf actress to have won an Academy Award. The show worked really hard to develop her as a character and not just as someone who is Deaf.

This is not a TV show but the movie A Quiet Place has good Deaf representation.
