Sosie Bacon & Albert Rutecki On The New Amazon Prime Video Series “As We See It” & More
From Emmy Award-winner Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights), As We See It follows Jack (Rick Glassman), Harrison (Albert Rutecki) and Violet (Sue Ann Pien) — 20-something 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 three roommates experience setbacks and celebrate triumphs on their own unique journeys towards independence and acceptance. Uniquely, series stars Glassman, Rutecki and Pien all identify as living on the autism spectrum. The acclaimed series also stars Sosie Bacon as their aide Mandy, Chris Pang as Violet’s brother Van, and (Tony and Drama Desk Award Winner) Joe Mantegna as Jack’s father Lou.
Based on an Israeli format created by Idisis and Shafferman, As We See It comes from True Jack Productions, Universal Television (a division of Universal Studio Group), Israel’s Yes Studios, and Amazon Studios, the aforementioned Katims serves as the series’ showrunner, writer and executive producer. Jeni Mulein, Danna Stern, Dana Idisis, Yuval Shafferman and Udi Segal also executive produce the series, while award-winning writer/director Jesse Peretz directed and executive produced its first episode. In other words, As We See It offers a first-rate crew beyond its top-notch cast.
