Actors Mark Ruflow and Hugh Lori have joined the cast of the Netflix Limited series All the Light We Can’t See.
The show is based on Anthony Dore’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name, published in 2014, Variety reported.
The four-episode series focuses on Mary-Lorre, a blind teenager who crosses the path of a collision with German soldier Werner as the two struggle to survive the devastation of World War II in occupied France. Blind actress Arya Mia Loberti plays the lead role of Mary-Lore in the series.
Rufallo plays Daniel LeBlanc, the father of Mary-Lore, who is described as caring and smart. Locke Smith, principal of the Museum of Natural History in Paris, says Daniel is trying to protect his daughter while at the same time giving her freedom. He also seeks to protect the secret gem they carry from the Nazi occupation.
Lori will play Etienne LeBlanc, a World War I hero suffering from PTSD. Etienne is a nervous shut-in that records secret radio broadcasts as part of the French resistance.
Free Guy director Sean Levy will lead the series while Steven Knight of Peeky Blinders will be the writer. The two will co-produce the limited series with Dan Levine and Josh Barry of Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment.
