Queensland has secured another major international production, with the second series of the Amazon Original young adult drama, The Wilds, starring Rachel Griffiths, Mia Healey and Shannon Berry, to film primarily on the Gold Coast from April.
The hit drama series, which filmed its first season in New Zealand, is landing on Queensland shores thanks to the Queensland Government’s Production Attraction Strategy and is expected to inject $28 million into the state and create around 150 jobs for local crew.
The Wilds, currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video, centres around a group of teenage girls from different backgrounds who find themselves marooned on a deserted island, unaware that they are part of a sinister social experiment.
Co-produced by Amazon Studios and ABC Signature Studios, part of Disney Television Studios, The Wilds Season 2 will also engage local production company, Hoodlum Entertainment, as its service company in Australia.
All suitably qualified and available Queensland crew are invited to submit an expression of interest for crew positions.
