20th Television is developing a new drama series called “We Were The Lucky Ones”, which will star Joey King , Logan Lerman, Robin Weigert and Lior Ashkenazi.  This new series is based on Georgia Hunter’s bestseller about a Jewish family separated at the start of WWII yet determined to survive and reunite.

Deadline has reported that Amit Rahav, Eva Feiler and Hadas Yaron have joined the series in regular roles.

Amit Rahav (Unorthodox, the upcoming Transatlantic) will play the role of Jakob in the limited series. The youngest of his brothers, Jakob, is a photographer. Sweet and soulful, there is hardly anywhere he’d rather be than beside his high school sweetheart, Bella (Eva Feiler), or peering down through the viewfinder of his camera.

Eva Feiler (The Crown) will star as Bella, who is deeply ingrained in the fabric of the Kurc family and is Jakob’s (Amit Rahav) long-time love. Kind and clever and forever devoted to her own close-knit family, Bella’s is a journey of heartbreak, courage and unconditional love.

Hadas Yaron (Mary Magdalene) will play the thoughtful and diligent, Mila, who holds a degree in classical music. A new mother at the start of the war, she must learn to keep a brave face amidst the harrowing circumstances, and to trust her instincts when it comes to keeping her young daughter alive.

This new limited series is going to be executive produced and written by Erica Lipez, who also serves as showrunner.   Erica has previously worked on Apple TV’s “The Morning Show”.  It will be directed by Thomas Kail, who has previously worked on FX’s “Fosse/Verdon”. He will also be an executive producer, along with Jennifer Todd, Adam Milch and Georgia Hunter.

“We Were The Lucky Ones” is due to be released on Hulu in the United States and is likely to be released globally as a Star Original on Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ internationally.

The Hulu Originals series is a production of 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.
