A story about two American kids who live on a U.S. military base in Italy, the series explores friendship, first love, identity, and immerses the audience in all the messy exhilaration and anguish of being a teenager – a story which could happen anywhere in the world, but in this case, happens in this little slice of America in Italy.

The cast of We Are Who We Are includes: Chloë Sevigny, Jack Dylan Grazer, Alice Braga, Jordan Kristine Seamón, Spence Moore II, Kid Cudi, Faith Alabi, Francesca Scorsese, Ben Taylor, Corey Knight, Tom Mercier, and Sebastiano Pigazzi.

Jack Dylan Grazer stars as shy and introverted fourteen-year-old Fraser, who moves from New York to a military base in Veneto with his mothers, Sarah (Chloë Sevigny) and Maggie (Alice Braga), who are both in the U.S. Army. Tom Mercier (Jonathan) plays Sarah’s assistant.

Jordan Kristine Seamón stars as the seemingly bold and confident Caitlin, who has lived with her family on the base for several years and speaks Italian. Compared to her older brother Danny (Spence Moore II), Caitlin has the closer relationship with their father, Richard (Kid Cudi), and does not communicate well with her mother Jenny (Faith Alabi).

Caitlin is the lynchpin of her group of friends, which includes Britney (Francesca Scorsese), an outspoken, witty, sexually uninhibited girl; the cheerful and good-natured Craig (Corey Knight), a soldier in his twenties; Sam (Ben Taylor), Caitlin’s possessive boyfriend, and Craig’s younger brother; Enrico (Sebastiano Pigazzi), a playful eighteen-year-old from Veneto, who has a weak spot for Britney; and Valentina (Beatrice Barichella), an Italian girl.

Episode 1: “Right Here Right Now I”

Debut date: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)

When Sarah Wilson (Chloë Sevigny) is named the new commander of a difficult military unit in Chioggia, Italy, she uproots her wife Maggie (Alice Braga) and teenage son Fraser (Jack Dylan Grazer) from their lives in New York City to start a new chapter in this unfamiliar seaside town. While Sarah contends with her new position and Maggie resumes her work at the army’s clinic, Fraser longs for Mark, a friend he left behind in New York, and seems uninterested in connecting with the other teenagers on base – until he meets Caitlin (Jordan Kristine Seamón).

Episode 2: “Right Here Right Now II”

Debut date: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)

The arrival of Caitlin’s (Jordan Kristine Seamón) period accelerates her secret desire to experiment with her gender expression – and to flirt with girls, test boundaries with her boyfriend Sam (Ben Taylor), and spar with her father Richard (Scott Mescudi). As she and her brother Danny (Spence Moore II) continue to clash with their mother Jenny (Faith Alabi), Caitlin’s relationships with her both her dad and Danny’s best friend Craig (Corey Knight) deepen. Later, Fraser (Jack Dylan Grazer) discovers Caitlin’s secret, which forever changes the nature of their relationship.

Later, Maggie (Alice Braga) attends the Chioggia Festival with the neighborhood women and finds an unexpected companion in Jenny (Faith Alabi). Meanwhile, the progress Colonel Wilson (Chloë Sevigny) has made in her new role is derailed when she decides to deploy her troops early – and her complex relationship with Fraser is rattled when his crush becomes her only ally.
