Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Hulu is giving a glimpse of the new series We Were the Lucky Ones.

The streaming service shared a trailer for the World War II drama Friday featuring Joey King and Logan Lerman.

We Were the Lucky Ones is based on the Georgia Hunter novel of the same name. The show is inspired by the true story of a Jewish family who are separated at the start of WWII but remain determined to survive and reunite.

"We Were the Lucky Ones demonstrates how in the face of the twentieth century's darkest moment, the human spirit can endure and even thrive. The series is a tribute to the triumph of hope and love against all odds," an official synopsis reads.

Hadas Yaron, Henry-Lloyd Hughes, Amit Rahav, Sam Woolf, Michael Aloni, Moran Rosenblatt, Eva Feiler, Lior Ashkenazi and Robin Weigert also star.
