On February 9, Hulu released a trailer for their limited series We Were the Lucky Ones adaptation. Based on the novel, We Were the Lucky Ones, by Georgia Hunter, the series shows how even in the face of hardship and evil, love and family overpowers all. For those of you who don’t know, the novel is actually based on Hunter’s real family and their experience during the holocaust. After discovering at the age of 15 that her family comes from a line of Holocaust survivors, Hunter wrote her novel which was inspired by her family.

According to Deadline, Erica Lipez wrote, produced, and is the showrunner for the series. Working alongside her are producers Thomas Kail, Jennifer Todd, and Adam Milch. Hunter herself will also help co-produce as well.

The series will star Joey King (The Act, The Kissing Booth) as Halina Kurc and Logan Lerman (Perks of Being A Wallflower, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief) as Addy Kurc. Henry-Lloyd Hughes, Sam Woolf, Michael Aloni, Hada Yaron, Amit Rahav, Moran Rosenblatt, Lior Ashkenazi, Robin Weigert, and Eva Feiler will also share the screen with King and Lerman as the rest of the Kurc family.
