Amazon Studios has picked up to series young adult drama pilot “The Wilds” from writer-executive producer Sarah Streicher (“Daredevil”) and ABC Signature Studios. Described as “part survival drama, part dystopic slumber party,” the series follows a group of teenage girls from very different backgrounds who survive a plane crash and are stranded on a deserted island.
“The Wilds” is the second young adult themed drama Amazon has ordered in recent weeks, joining “Panic” from author and showrunner Lauren Oliver.
“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.”
