This piece was written during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labor of the writers and actors currently on strike, Wilderness being covered here wouldn’t exist. We stand with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA.
Prime Video releases first look imagery for Wilderness, a UK Original series, that revolves around British couple Liv (Jenna Coleman) and Will (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), who seem to have it all. But nothing is as it seems. Ready?
Here we go!
Written and created by BAFTA Breakthrough Brit Marnie Dickens, based on B.E. Jones’ novel of the same name, Wilderness is a twisted love story, where a dream holiday and a supposedly “happily-ever-after” quickly turn into a living nightmare.
Liv thinks that has everything. A rock-solid marriage. A glamorous new life in New York. A golden future stretching ahead of her and her husband Will. Until Liv learns about the affair. Heartbreak is swiftly followed by another emotion: fury.
Enter the American road trip Liv’s fantasized about since she was little, from Monument Valley to the Grand Canyon, through Yosemite, Wilderness ending up with a hedonistic weekend in Las Vegas to blow off the dust and sweat.
For Will, it’s a chance to make amends, for Liv, it’s a very different prospect—a landscape where accidents happen all the time. The perfect place to get revenge.
Liv’s best-laid plans are wrecked and, as the foursome go hiking together, Cara and Garth soon find themselves enmeshed in Will and Liv’s lives in a way that will change the course of all their future’s forever.
Wilderness is a psychological thriller driven by a female team, created by Marnie Dickens, based on B.E. Jones’ novel, directed by So Yong Kim, and executive produced by Elizabeth Kilgarriff. UK Original show launches on Prime Video globally this autumn.
And time for Wilderness’ first look!
