Deadline reports that USA Network has decided not to move forward with the two-hour TV show pilot for The Wilding TV series. The Wilding is from creator and writer Silka Luisa. It is executive produced by Tim Kring, whose Heroes Reborn TV series, while not technically cancelled, ended after its first and only season on NBC.
The cast of The Wilding includes: Jordana Spiro, Antonio Jaramillo, Nadia Alexander, LisaGay Hamilton, and Dominic Fumusa. According to Deadline, Universal Cable Productions will shop the supernatural drama to other outlets.
The project, starring Jordana Spiro, was part of a broader initiative at UCP and the NBCUniversal cable networks it supplies, including USA and Syfy, to jump-start a greater volume of high-end series at a lower license fee to the nets through a model that involves UCP supplementing the budget for the shows through financing via collaborations with international networks and SVOD deals.
Set in suburban North Carolina, The Wilding centered around the Hayes family — a typical, loving blended family seeking a fresh start after their 17-year-old daughter, Kayla, is released from a mental health institution following ten years of treatment. Their ideals are quickly threatened, however, when Kayla’s apparitions of the dead begin to haunt them once again. The pilot was directed by Ciarán Foy.
USA reportedly gave the pilot the greenlight, back in October.
What do you think? Do you like the sound of The Wilding TV show? If another network picks it up, do you plan to check it out?
I am not sure if you got my message, but my wife who is 63 found out this year that her mother gave birth to a brother 60 years ago and just found out by a cousin doing a check on 23 and me that she had a brother and same for him he did not know about her. they both thought they were only child. Mother left him years ago. And did not keep in touch with my wife.
I loved the show. I have a real sad story to tell, but very old. And to this day still searching. My story is very unusual, but I would love to speak to someone from your show. Please get back with me. Pearl
What a waste! I caught the last 40 minutes of it one night and loved it. The execs at USA must be brain dead to put crap like Suits and Queen of the South on, yet do not even air the one series that could be interesting enough to gain new viewers. Of course, these are the same duds who bring us the moronic series on SyFy! Time for a major shakeup of management!
I got a chance to see this pilot and thought it was very interesting. Been looking for additional showings ever since. This needs to be picked up by a network. Also, King and Maxwell needs to come back! You need to give people a chance to check out new shows before you cancel them. Right now would be a great time to have these shows on. There is hardly anything worth watching right now. Also, why is Rizzoli and isles getting Canc? Another good shoe that maybe another network can grab up! Please at least show a season of the… Read more »
I watched the first episode on Amazon.. now I am sorry that I did. I felt like a child who was given a present and then someone took it away from me. I want to know what’s going on and what each main characters roles are. So yes, I would love for any other network to pick it up…soon. I spend a lot of money buying and bingewatching/streaming new and favorite older series (I have become spoiled watching shows without commercials) and would do so for this show as well.
I really wanted to see the next one. I hope SyFy picks it up instead!
Very disappointed with usa. I really like the show
Disappointed that this will not continue.. why would it even air if it wasnt going to continue
I want to watch the wilding.
What the heck I already set my DVR why start something and not finish the first episode was really good
Watched the pilot. Would love to see more.
