The Wilds - YA Survival Drama Ordered to Series by Amazon



Amazon has ordered their YA drama pilot "The Wilds" to series per deadline. It joins fellow YA series Panic, which was ordered a few weeks ago. The other YA drama pilot "College" is not moving forward.

Part survival drama, part dystopic slumber party, The Wilds follows a group of teenage girls from radically different backgrounds after an airplane crash strands them on a deserted island. The show explores the past and present struggles of these young women, offering up a vivid portrayal of what it means to grow up female in our time – whether you are lost in the wilderness or not.

The cast includes Mia Healey, Helena Howard, Reign Edwards and Shannon Berry

“We are thrilled to share this exciting original vision with our global audience,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “We are proud to be the home for this authentically voiced, high stakes show brought to life by the talented Sarah Streicher, Amy B. Harris and our ABC Signature Studios partners.”

“Coming of age is not for the faint of heart,” said Streicher. “It can take as much grit and fire to survive our teenage years as it would to survive, say, on a deserted island. The Wilds grew from that notion, and it’s afforded me an opportunity to explore teenage-hood in all of its perils, joys, and heartbreaks. I’m beyond thrilled that it’s found a home at Amazon.”
