Per the report, the drama centers on “wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the Ontario wilderness.” The series will chronicle their descent from a thriving team to “warring, cannibalistic clans,” whilst also focusing on their lives some 25 years later.

Lewis and Ricci will star as the adult versions of their respective characters, with Thatcher and Hanratty set to portray the younger iterations.

Narcos alums Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson created the series.
