“Call Me By Your Name” director Luca Guadagnino is working on another gay love story set in Italy but this time the project is for the small screen.

According to the Observer, Guadagnino is working on a limited series for HBO tentatively titled “We Are Who We Are.” The eight-episode series will focus on teenagers Fraser and Caitlin who are living on a military base in Italy.

Fraser recently moved to the military base from New York City with his mother, a colonel, and her wife. He strikes up a friendship with Caitlin, who everyone thinks is his girlfriend. However, Fraser is actually missing a boy from back home. He will also reportedly begin a romance with an older soldier.

Guadagnino is expected to direct the first two episodes and the season finale. Filming is set to begin in May.
