You know what will never not be in style? Young, innocent-looking women who reveal a much darker side. It’s a big part of the reason Jenna Ortega (Scream, Wednesday) is so hot right now. Well, now it’s Doctor Who actress Jenna Coleman’s turn in the upcoming series Wilderness, in which she plays a wife whose shit list you really don’t want to be on.
Written and created by Marnie Dickens and based on B.E. Jones’ novel, Wilderness is the story of a woman scorned, and her vicious plot to get revenge. Oliver Jackson-Cohen is a guy who has an extramarital affair, and then makes the terrible mistake of going on a road trip with his spouse who plots his demise.
So Young Kim (Lovesong) directed the series episodes.
Here’s the synopsis: The series tells the story of British couple Liv (Jenna Coleman) and Will (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), who seem to have it all. A rock-solid marriage. A glamorous new life in New York. Until Liv learns about her husband’s infidelity. And the lies don’t stop there…
The trailer reveals the striking backdrop of the series as the couple embark on the American road trip that Liv’s always dreamed of, from the Grand Canyon to Yosemite, before ending with a wild weekend in Las Vegas. The series exclusively features Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do (Taylor’s Version)” as the song of the opening titles.
This looks like one of those must-see shows that we’ll all be buzzing about around the water cooler (do people still do that?) and on social media. Wilderness hits Prime Video on September 15th.
