Jenna Coleman and Oliver Jackson-Cohen to Star in Amazon's Upcoming Drama 'Wilderness'

Amazon has today given a series order to the original drama Wilderness starring Jenna Coleman (Victoria, The Serpent) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Hill House, Surface). Production will commence this month in the UK, United States and Canada.

Based on the novel by B.E. Jones, the drama will follow British couple Liv (Coleman) and Will (Jackson-Cohen), who seem to have it all: a rock-solid marriage; a glamorous new life in New York thousands of miles from their provincial hometown; and still young enough to feel that their whole lives are ahead of them. Until Liv learns about Will's affair. Heartbreak is swiftly followed by another emotion: fury. Revenge is her only option, and when Will proposes a trip around America's epic National Parks to give their relationship a fresh start, Liv knows just how to get it. The drama is a twisted love story, where a dream holiday and a supposedly "happily-ever-after" quickly turns into a living nightmare.

Marnie Dickens developed the drama, with So Yong Kim set to direct. They will executive produce with Elizabeth Kilgarriff. Firebird Pictures will produce.
