Amazon is diving into the young adult genre. Deadline reports the streaming service has ordered a new TV show called The Wilds.
From Daredevil writer Sarah Streicher, the drama series “follows a group of teenage girls from radically different backgrounds after an airplane crash strands them on a deserted island.”
Amazon has not yet announced a premiere date for The Wilds.
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.”
