The final episodes of A Small Light are at the top of the Disney Plus schedule May 15-21.
On Tuesday, May 16, Disney Plus will release the final two installments of A Small Light, hours after the biographical drama series finale aired on National Geographic. Written by Joan Rater and Tony Phelan, the eight-part show follows the story of Anne Frank from the perspective of Miep Gies, a young Dutch woman who hid the Frank family from the Nazis during World War II. In fact, Gies found Anne’s famous diary, in which the young Jewess documented her life during Nazi persecution while hiding in an Amsterdam attic.
A Small Light stars Bel Powley as Miep Gies, Liev Schreiber as Otto Frank, Joe Cole as Jan Gies, Amira Casar as Edith Frank, Billie Boullet as Anne Frank, Ashley Brooke as Margot Frank, and Noah Taylor as Dr. Friedrich Pfeffer to see others.
“The powerful eight-episode limited series tells the remarkable story of secretary Miep Gies (Bel Powley), in her 20s, who did not hesitate when her boss Otto Frank (Liev Schreiber) asked her to save him and his family from the Nazis hiding during World War II,” reads the log line. “For the next two years, Miep, her husband Jan (Joe Cole) and several other everyday heroes watched over the eight souls hiding in the Secret Annex. It was Miep who found Anne’s diary and kept it so that she and Otto could later share it with the world.”
The project comes from ABC Signature along with Keshet Studios. Rater and Phelan also serve as showrunners and executive producers, with Susanna Fogel executive producing and directing several episodes.
