The first series by award-winning screenwriter, director and producer Luca Guadagnino will be released in October on Sky and in streaming on NOW TV. It consists of 8 episodes that tell the story of two young people living their adolescence in an American military base in Italy..
We Are Who We Are is a story that deals with themes such as friendship, first loves, contrasting feelings typical of the age of the two protagonists, and of all teenagers in this world.
HBO, who didn’t want to leak too much information, commented on the series when the teaser was released:
We Are Who We Are is the story of two American children living on an American military base in Italy. The series explores friendship, first love, identity and plunges the audience into the messy sense of euphoria and anguish of being a teenager – a story that could happen anywhere in the world, but in this case, it happens in this small slice of America in Italy.
The cast of the series, along with the two protagonists played by Jack Dylan Grazer and Jordan Kristine Seamón, also includes actors of the calibre of Chloë Sevigny, Kid Cudi, Alice Braga, Francesca Scorsese, Corey Knight, Beatrice Barichella, Ben Taylor and Sebastiano Pigazzi.
