Fremantle announced an array of global deals for director Luca Guadagnino’s “We Are Who We Are”. The eight-part series, which sees Luca Guadagnino bring his unique cinematic style to television for the first time, has travelled to 133 territories worldwide, including M-Net (South Africa), HBO Europe (Nordic, Spain, Portugal and CEE), HBO Latin America (Latin America and Caribbean), Starzplay (Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Germany, France, Luxembourg and Netherlands), Vodafone (Greece), more.tv (Russia), GO Plc (Malta), BluTV (Turkey), SBS (Australia), Bell Media’s Super Écran and Crave (French Canada) and Watcha (South Korea). Fremantle has also sold the series to BBC Three (UK), where it will launch on November 22.

“The global anticipation for ‘We Are Who We Are’ has been remarkable. Luca’s first TV series in his distinctive filming style, features a fresh and diverse cast to tell a universal coming-of age story that reflects many of the issues that matter to young audiences today. Questioning the constructs of gender, identity, friendship and family, this premium and innovative series could not be more timely or relevant, and we are proud to bring this fantastic artistic vision to audiences around the world,”  said Jens Richter, CEO, International at Fremantle.

A HBO-SKY series, produced by Lorenzo Mieli for The Apartment and by Mario Gianani for Wildside, both Fremantle Companies, with Small Forward, “We Are Who We Are” tells the story of 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.
