The BBC1 series, written by Peter Bowker, is being produced by ITV Studios-owned Mammoth Screen.

The series tells the story of the conflict through the intertwining fates of ordinary people drawn from Britain, Poland, France, Germany and the US as they grapple with the effects of the war on their everyday lives.

Bean said: “I am thrilled to be part of this ambitious drama. Peter Bowker’s study of the human stories that thread through this huge global conflict is fascinating and something I look forward to being part of on screen.”

Academy Award winner Helen Hunt and Olivier Award winner Lesley Manville are already in the cast.

Filming started in September in Prague and in other locations, include Manchester and Paris. ITV Studios Global Entertainment is handling global distribution.
