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?
Wow really, it was great, why bother showing a pilot and leave people hanging and every other supernatural series ending, I hope Syfy picks it up.
Yes I was extremely disappointed to find that ‘The Wilding’ wasn’t coming back on. That was the best show I’ve seen in a very long time! Some network needs to pick it up. I was on the edge of my seat! I was really looking forward to the next episode.
Loved the pilot. Sorry there won’t be a series. I wish that they hadn’t left it with a cliff hanger. Should do a follow up to tie up the loose ends.
Watched the pilot of The Wilding this morning, June 18th at 1am, on the USA Network. Was very intrigued and planned to set my DVR to record the entire series only to find out USA is not going on with the series! Why bother to televise the pilot? It seems you have viewers interested! Makes no sense what so ever! Not a good move USA/NBC!!!
The pilot for The Wilding was extremely good. If USA does not want to run the series please see if another network will. Would be lousy to lose there are too many crappy shows on the cable, This show is worth the time to see every week.
I watched the pilot. Very interesting! Thought I was watching a movie & couldn’t believe how it ended in a cliff hanger. I looked it up only to find out it is a series…that’s not going forward?! Please air the series! Wish I had recorded the pilot to share with my family.
The WILDING was awesome! One of the best shows I have seen in a very long time. Please bring it back… You just left us hanging. You’ve got
a great show and then you shut it down…why did you even show it, we loved it & you ended it doesn’t make sense. Extremely Interesting… Not like anything I’ve ever seen before!!
I want to see the wilding!the pilot was great.!want to see what’s what.plz bring it back to USA..
I watched it!! I am hooked! I would have loved for this show to come on. Beats a lot of the other stuff on TV.
Are you kidding? They just showed the pilot on USA. It ended on a total cliffhanger. How can they just leave the whole thing there? Why even show the pilot if they aren’t going to continue the show???
This is a awesome show, please don’t get rid of it.
The pilot aired on USA tonight June 18 at 1 am. It was the first I had heard of it. The pilot intrigued me. It was a very interesting show and I really want to watch more. Please air the series USA or any other network!
