The series is based on Georgia Hunter’s bestseller about a Jewish family separated at the start of WWII, determined to survive and reunite.
Lerman, who stars in Amazon’s Hunters — exec produced by Jordan Peele, which is returning for a second season — will play Addy, a 25-year-old Polish, Jewish middle child. He is an adventurer who lives in Paris as an engineer and is enjoying budding success as a music composer. He has an ability to find common ground with dissimilar people and a talent to fix anything. The character is inspired by the story of Georgia Hunter’s grandfather as a young man in the late 1930s.
Lerman got his break in the Percy Jackson films and also has starred in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Indignation.
The limited series, which comes from 20th Television, is executive produced and written by Erica Lipez (The Morning Show), who also serves as showrunner. Thomas Kail (Fosse/Verdon) directs and executive produces. Jennifer Todd executive produces for Old 320 Sycamore. Adam Milch will executive produce and Hunter will co-executive produce.
Lerman is represented by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney Bob Wallerstein.
