In conjunction with Firebird Pictures, Amazon Prime has announced that they have greenlit an adaption of ‘Wilderness,’ a psychological thriller from British author B.E. Jones.

“A new psychological thriller, Wilderness, will launch on Amazon Prime Video in 2023. The UK Original series, based on B.E. Jones’ novel of the same name, will be written, created, and executive produced by Marnie Dickens, executive produced by Elizabeth Kilgarriff, produced by Firebird Pictures for Amazon Studios, and will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in 2023 in over 240 countries and territories,” Amazon said in a press release. “‘Wilderness’ is a twisted love story, where a dream holiday and a supposedly “happily-ever-after” life quickly turn into a living nightmare.”

The story follows “British couple Liv and Will 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, she knows just the place…”

Dickens explained, “Wilderness is pure, unadulterated fun, where our heroine Liv says the things you wish you had the guts to, does the things you can only (fantasize) about, and lives by her own increasingly outrageous set of rules. I’m thrilled to bring the Prime Video audience along for her ride.”

Kilgarriff added, “We’re so excited to be bringing Marnie’s gripping and provocative scripts to life with the fantastic team at Amazon. Taking B.E. Jones’ brilliant story and super-charging it for the screen, Wilderness asks just how far you would go to get revenge on the person who ripped out your heart.”

‘Wilderness’ joins the ever-growing Amazon Prime catalogue of originals.
