“The plane crashed… a bunch of our friends died… and then the rest of us starved and scavenged.” So begins the official teaser for Showtime’s “Yellowjackets,” a survival drama that features a pilot episode directed by Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body, The Invitation).
The series was created by Ashley Lyle & Bart Nickerson (“Narcos”), described as being “equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story and coming-of-age drama.”
Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Christina Ricci, and Juliette Lewis star.
“Yellowjackets is the saga of a team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness. The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over.”
Jonathan Lisco (Animal Kingdom, Halt and Catch Fire) joins Lyle and Nickerson to serve as executive producer and show running partner. The series will premiere this coming Fall.
