Amazon has teamed up with Parenthood creator Jason Katims and Yes Studios, the team behind hit series Fauda, to adapt Israeli dramedy On The Spectrum, which explores the lives of three 20-somethings living with autism.

The untitled series revolves around the trio of roommates, who strive for the same things that everyone else does: to get a job, keep a job, make friends, fall in love, and navigate a world that eludes them.

Rick Glassman, Sue Ann Pien and Albert Rutecki, who each identify as living on the autism spectrum, star alongside Sosie Bacon, Chris Pang and Joe Mantegna.

Katims, who will write and executive produce the series, said the project was “deeply personal” for him.

“Having a 23-year-old son on the spectrum, it is deeply personal for me to get to tell this unique story of what it’s like to come of age as someone with autism,” Katims added.
