Having been in lockdown for over a year, traveling to a tropical island sounds pretty nice right about now… unless you’re Shelby Goodkind from Amazon’s “The Wilds.”
The series follows Shelby, played by Mia Healey, and a group of teen girls from different backgrounds who unknowingly become part of a giant social experiment after their plane crashes on a deserted island. Part survival drama, part dystopian slumber party, the series explores the past and present struggles of young women growing up in modern society.
“Seeing a show that was led by eight women, young women, it was just so powerful,” Healey told WrapWomen. “You read a script and sometimes you just know it’s important and you should be doing it.”
