Actors Ashley Benson, Eric Balfour, Claire Rushbrook, Marsha Stephanie Blake and Morgana Van Peebles all join Jenna Coleman and Oliver Jackson-Cohen in the upcoming Amazon Original drama series titled Wilderness.
Wilderness is a twisted love story, where a dream holiday and a supposedly “happily-ever-after” quickly turns into a living nightmare. Based on B.E. Jones’ novel of the same name, Wilderness features 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.
Prime Video has announced Ashley Benson will be seen as Cara, alongside Eric Balfour as Garth, Claire Rushbrook as Caryl and Marsha Stephanie Blake as Det.
