Amazon Prime Video has set a January premiere date and unveiled the official trailer for As We See It, Jason Katims’ comedy drama series about living on the autism spectrum. All eight episodes will premiere exclusively on Prime Video on Friday, January 21, in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
Based on an Israeli format created by Dana Idisis and Yuval Shafferman, As We See It follows Jack (Rick Glassman), Harrison (Albert Rutecki), and Violet (Sue Ann Pien), twentysomething roommates on the autism spectrum, as they strive to get and keep jobs, make friends, fall in love, and navigate a world that eludes them. With the help of their families, aide, and sometimes even each other, these roommates experience setbacks and celebrate triumphs on their own unique journeys towards independence and acceptance. Series stars Glassman, Rutecki, and Pien all identify as living on the autism spectrum. The series also stars Sosie Bacon as their aide Mandy, Chris Pang as Violet’s brother Van, and Joe Mantegna as Jack’s father Lou.
Katims serves as showrunner, writer, and executive producer, with Jeni Mulein, Danna Stern, Idisis, Shafferman, and Udi Segal also executive producing. Jesse Peretz directs and executive produces the first episode. As We See It comes from True Jack Productions, Universal Television (a division of Universal Studio Group), Israel’s yes Studios, and Amazon Studios.
