The actors who play the autistic lead roles of the show all identify as living on the autism spectrum as well.

As We See It debuts January 21 with all eight episodes of the first season on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. 

The show, from creator Jason Katims, stars Rick Glassman, Albert Rutecki and Sue Ann Pien as the roommates.  

The series also stars Sosie Bacon as their aide, Chris Pang as Pien’s brother, and Joe Mantegna as Glassman’s father and was based on the Israeli show On the Spectrum. 

The care that Katims had in having neurodiversity represented on set helped the production of the show innumerably, especially when it came to supporting the actors.  

While every actor came with their own experiences with neurodiversity, the production supported them.  

Glassman was diagnosed as an adult. He recalls, “All of these seemingly unrelated obstacles became patterns that made sense… It's something that I was and am proud of.” 

Playing a neurodiverse character was also freeing for Pien. “I have to usually hide all of my differences. I wrote this piece about how I'm playing a character on top of a character when I go into audition.”
