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

“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 Wilds will be co-produced by Amazon Studios and ABC Signature Studios with Streicher’s overall deal at ABC Studios. Amy B. Harris will act as executive producer and showrunner for the series, along with Streicher, Jamie Tarses’ Fanfare and Dylan Clark, Brian Williams of Dylan Clark Productions, and Susanna Fogel who directed and executive produced the pilot.
