WILDERNESS With Jenna Coleman & Oliver Jackson-Cohen Streams on Prime This Fall
BC-and-Alberta-filmed Wilderness series, with Jenna Coleman and Oliver Jackson-Cohen in a twisted love story set in America’s national parks, will stream on Amazon’s Prime Video this Fall.
British couple Liv (Jenna Coleman) and Will, (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) seem to have it all. A rock-solid marriage. A glamorous new life in New York. A golden future stretching ahead of them. 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, on through Yosemite, 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.
While exploring the American wilderness, the couple bump into Will’s colleague Cara (Ashley Benson), a young woman with a glittering career and an adoring boyfriend, Garth (Eric Balfour). 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 futures forever.
The revenge-thriller series is a twisted love story of a “happily-ever-after” life quickly turning into a living nightmare.
