Posted by at 12:10 pm on May 29, 2019

Variety has posted that Amazon Studios has ordered The Wilds, a YA drama from writer and executive producer Sarah Streicher (Daredevil) to series.

“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 Harris, and our ABC Signature Studios partners.”

“Coming of age is not for the faint of heart. 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,” added Streicher.

The series follows a group of teenage girls from radically different backgrounds after an airplane crash strands them on a deserted island.

The Wilds is a co-production between Amazon Studios and ABC Signature Studios, with Streicher being under an overall deal at ABC Studios. Amy B. Harris will serve as executive producer and showrunner.
