Part survival drama, part dystopic slumber party, The Wilds follows a group of teen girls from different backgrounds who must fight for survival after a plane crash strands them on a deserted island. The castaways both clash and bond as they learn more about each other, the secrets they keep, and the traumas they've all endured. There's just one twist to this thrilling drama… these girls did not end up on this island by accident.
A social video 'To All The Wonderful Girls In The World' has been created to highlight some of the key themes that come up throughout the series, themes that strongly impact young women in today's society. It touches on insecurities and what it's like to hit rock bottom, and some Australian inlfuencers such as Sjana Earp and Caroline Groth speak candidly about dealing with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bullying and more.
The Wilds is co-produced by Amazon Studios and ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios. Sarah Streicher (Daredevil) created the series and also serves as executive producer alongside Amy B. Harris (Sex and the City and The Carrie Diaries), Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings), and Dylan Clark (The Batman and Bird Box).
