HBO announced on Tuesday that upcoming teen drama We Are Who We Are will debut in September.
From Oscar nominee Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name), the series centers on shy, introverted 14-year-old Fraser (Jack Dylan Grazer) and bold, confident Caitlin (Jordan Kristine Seamon), two teenagers living on a U.S. military base in Italy. Having lived on the base for several years, Caitlin takes Fraser under her wing and helps acclimate him to his new surroundings, including introducing him to the group of friends for whom she acts as a lynchpin. What he soon finds out, though, is that his new life in Italy is really no different than the life he left behind in New York, as the issues of friendship, first-love, and identity transcend all borders.
In addition to Grazer and Seamon, We Are Who We Are stars Chloe Sevigny (Big Love) and Alice Braga (Queen of the South) as Fraser’s mothers Sarah and Maggie, both of whom are in the Army; Tom Mercier (Synonyms) as Sarah’s assistant Jonathan; Spencer Moore II (Five Points) as Caitlin’s older brother Danny; Kid Cudi (How to Make It in America) as Caitlin’s father Richard; Faith Alabi (Grantchester) as Caitlin’s mother Jenny; Francesca Scorsese (Almost Paris) as Britney, an outspoken, witty, sexually uninhibited part of Caitlin’s friend group; Corey Knight (Nobodies) as cheerful, good natured soldier Craig; Ben Taylor (Defending Jacob) as Caitlin’s possessive boyfriend and Craig’s younger brother Sam; Sebastian Pigazzi (Stupid Cupid) as playful 18-year-old Enrico; and newcomer Beatrice Barichella as beautiful Italian girl Valentina.
The series is part of a scripted slate for the second half of 2020 that includes Nicole Kidman limited series The Undoing, about the unraveling of an affluent New York City psychologist; Jude Law limited series The Third Day, focused on the interconnected residents of a mysterious island; Jordan Peele horror drama Lovecraft Country; and financial drama Industry.
A premiere date and full trailer for We Are Who We Are should be released in the coming weeks.
