The Wilds: Shattered Ties
INT. WRECKED PLANE - DAY
We open on the GIRLS (LEAH, DOTTY, FELICITY, MARTHA, HOLLY, and JENNY) scavenging the wreckage of a recent plane crash.
I can't believe there are still supplies left from this wreck.
I'm not surprised. Nobody knew the second plane would crash so near us.
What matters is we find what we need... and we do it fast!
That's an understatement. With Beth gone and Amanda injured... we're barely standing as is.
We've survived so far, that has to count for something, right?
True. But we can't afford to trust in fate alone.
ANGLE ON: HOLLY and JENNY, as they search the seats for any useful items.
(examining an item)
I found a locked box, could have something useful in it.
Let's break it open then.
As the girls pry open the box, they find a HANDGUN and some bullets.
Do we really need this?
If things get worse, we might be glad to have it.
ANGLE ON: FELICITY inspecting some containers near a window. She GASPS as she sees something outside.
Guys! Everyone look! There's another girl out there!
The girls gather around, seeing a young woman, AMBER (18), staggering towards the wreckage.
EXT. WRECKED PLANE - DAY
Amber collapses just as the girls rush from the wreckage to help her.
(kneeling next to Amber)
She's hurt... and dehydrated. We need to get her somewhere safe.
But can we trust her? She's a stranger.
Until we know more, let's just work on keeping her alive.
Right. Holly, you and Dotty take Amber back to the shelter. We'll keep scavenging and meet you there.
INT. SHELTER - DAY
Amber, now in the girls' makeshift shelter, awakens slowly. Holly sees this and hands her a bottle of water.
Hey, easy now. How are you feeling?
We need to know where you came from.
Take your time, but we need to know we can trust you.
I can't remember everything...
Suddenly, there is a LOUD HOWL in the distance, making everyone still.
I've heard that before. When Beth and Amanda were attacked...
It's coming... for us, too?
We don't know that, but we have to be prepared.
(revealing the handgun)
The question is, are we ready to use this?
TO BE CONTINUED.
The Wilds: Episode Beyond
INT. SHELTER - DAY
A makeshift shelter constructed of debris from the plane crash. LEAH (17), athletic, bookish, and Fatin (16), fashionable, Instagram-obsessed, sit around a fire.
We might be stuck here longer than we expected.
I'm gonna #brokenail on this stupid island.
Leah rolls her eyes.
EXT. BEACH - DAY
DOT (18), focused, a survivalist, and MARTHA (16), quiet, gentle, walk along the shore, collecting items that may be useful.
We need to build a signal fire, maybe someone will see us.
Do you really believe they'll come back for us?
We need to have hope.
EXT. JUNGLE - DAY
TONI (15), tough, tomboyish, and RACHEL (18), sophisticated, varsity swimmer, explore the jungle in search of fresh water.
So, you really don't buy the whole Gretchen conspiracy?
No, I think she's just another rich, crazy lady.
INT. SHELTER - SAME
NORA (15), introspective, a shy chess prodigy, and SHELBY (16), pretty, conservative Texan, are organizing their supplies.
We're running low on food...
I know, we're all gonna have to learn how to hunt, I guess.
Nora looks disturbed by the thought.
EXT. JUNGLE - RIDGE - DAY
Leah and Fatin climb up to the ridge to get a better view of the island.
You know, we could've just Face-Tuned some abs and called it a day.
The 'world is our gym' now.
EXT. JUNGLE - RIVER - DAY
Rachel and Toni follow the sound of water until they discover a pristine river.
Well, looks like we found our water source!
Let's head back and tell the others.
They begin to walk back.
INT. SHELTER - DUSK
The girls gather at the shelter. Dot enters with a fresh catch of fish.
I caught dinner, ladies!
The girls gather around, grateful for the food.
EXT. JUNGLE - NIGHT
The group huddles around the fire but suddenly hear a sound from the jungle. They all look at each other nervously. Rachel stands up, grabs a makeshift spear.
I'll check it out.
The girls watch as she walks slowly towards the sound, the tension mounting...

The Wilds - Episode X: Unraveling Secrets
EXT. DESERTED ISLAND - MORNING
The sun rises as the GIRLS wake up, disheveled from their restless sleep.
Is it just me or was that the worst night's sleep ever?
You're just not used to it yet. Embrace the dirt, princess.
She's right, we're all becoming cavewomen.
I don't mind it, to be honest. Kind of peaceful.
I miss my bed...
We need to find a way off this island, fast.
Really? I hadn't thought of that.
Fine, Rachel. What's your plan, then?
We need to explore, find resources. Something's out there.
Alright, then. Let's split up and search. We can cover more ground that way.
EXT. DESERTED ISLAND - FOREST AREA - DAY
The girls split up into smaller groups. RACHEL, TONI and SHELBY are together.
This is the perfect place to send a distress signal.
True. If we find something to make fire, we can make smoke signals.
EXT. DESERTED ISLAND - WOODLAND AREA - DAY
FATIN, DOTTY, and NORA are slowly exploring.
FATIN (picking up a stick)
Can we use this as a weapon?
Well, it's better than nothing.
Do you think there could be any other people on this island?
I don't know, but it's a possibility we can't ignore.
EXT. DESERTED ISLAND - BEACH AREA - DAY
LEAH and MARTHA are searching for any helpful items.
LEAH (picking up a sharp rock)
We could use these as makeshift knives.
I hope we don't have to use them.
LEAH (looking out at the sea)
You know, I never thought I'd miss my family this much.
EXT. DESERTED ISLAND - MOUNTAIN AREA - DAY
All the girls reunite to discuss their findings. DOTTY stands on top of a hill.
Hey, everyone! I found something!
RACHEL (shouting back)
What is it?
Come and see!
Everyone rushes to the top of the hill to see a mysterious STRUCTURE hidden in the trees.
What the hell is that?
Whoever put it here must know about us.
Do you see that? There's writing on it.
Let's check it out.
The girls venture towards the structure, feeling uneasy but compelled to investigate.

The Wilds: A Cry for Help
INT. THE WILDS - DAY
Seven girls from the wreckage of the crashed plane have formed a makeshift camp next to the shore.
LEAH VANDERBELT (16), nerdy and introvert, listens to music on her headphones, trying to isolate herself from the group.
RACHEL DEVRIES (16), a skilled athlete, attempts to start a fire while her twin sister, NORA DEVRIES (16), sketches a map of the island in a notebook.
DOT CAMPBELL (17), resourceful and pragmatic, searches for salvageable supplies from the wreckage.
JEANETTE 'FATIN' JADIDA (16), fashionable and carefree, sunbathes on the beach, untroubled by the situation.
MARTHA BLACKBURN (17), spiritual and nurturing, comforts a despairing TONI SHALIFOE (17), who is still shaken from the crash.
It's going to be okay, Toni. We're alive, and that's what matters.
Damn it, I can't get this fire started.
Maybe we should focus on finding fresh water first.
LEAH (removing headphones)
Found a stream in the woods. The water seems clean enough to drink.
DOT (holding up supplies)
Got some food and first aid supplies. We should ration them until we figure our next move.
Aren't you all just a bunch of girls scouts. Worrying about survival when we should be enjoying this beautiful paradise.
This isn't a vacation, Fatin! We crashed on an island in the middle of nowhere. We need to get rescued!
They all hear a faint sound, like someone yelling from a distance.
Was that... a scream?
It must be Shelby. She ran off after the crash. We should find her.
We'll break into pairs. Leah, you go with Nora. Toni, Fatin, you're with Rachel. And Dot, you come with me. We'll cover more ground that way.
The girls split off and begin their search for SHELBY GOODKIND (17), God-fearing and warm-hearted.
EXT. THE WILDS - JUNGLE - DAY
Leah and Nora explore a dense jungle, communicating in a friendly tone.
I'd never think to sketch a map. That's pretty clever.
Thanks. It's just something I picked up from my mom's cartography skills.
You and Rachel are really close, huh?
Yeah, we are. Twins, actually. She's the more athletic one, obviously.
As they chat, they notice a rustling in the bushes.
Shelby? Is that you?
A WILD BOAR jumps out and charges toward them.

Episode-X: Chasing Truths
INT. THE BEACH - MORNING
The group of girls (LEAH, TONI, SHELBY, RACHEL, FATTIN, MARTHA, DOT, and NORA) are scattered around the beach, engaging in various activities to keep themselves busy.
LEAH (to NORA)
Don't you ever feel like we're never going to get off this island?
I've thought about it, but we can't lose hope.
Yeah, and besides, we're all voted off the island one by one, right?
Hilarious, Toni. Real Survivor humor there.
Suddenly, DOT spots something in the distance.
Guys! There's some sort of structure over there!
Everyone gathers around, excited and curious.
INT. DARK CAVE - DAY
The girls hesitantly make their way into the dark cave. Their flashlights illuminate the damp walls, revealing strange writings and markings.
This doesn't feel right. It's like someone else has been here.
Maybe it's a sign that there's been other survivors!
Or just another part of whatever sick game they're playing with us.
The girls continue to explore the cave, finding a makeshift radio system.
Do you think this was meant for us to find? That they want us to call for help?
Or maybe it's a trap.
As the girls argue about their newfound discovery, they're interrupted by a static-filled voice coming through the radio system:
RADIO VOICE (V.O.)
To all survivors, we are aware of your situation and are working to bring you home. Stay where you are and remain vigilant.
The girls look at each other in shock and confusion.
Did that just...?
Yeah. So, what do we do now?
We search for answers. Someone is orchestrating all of this.

The Wilds: Lost Souls
INT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE - NIGHT
The girls, tired and disheveled, gather around a small fire they've managed to create. LEAH pokes at the fire with a stick, while SHELBY offers an unopened can of beans to the group.
I'd kill for a pizza right now.
You and me both, girl.
It's amazing how far we've come... surviving in the wild and all.
Definitely, but we still need to plan to get back to civilization.
Has anyone had any luck with the radio?
It's still not working. Maybe we could try to find higher ground to boost the signal?
But what if we attract unwanted attention?
At this point, I think any kind of attention would be good for us.
Suddenly, a LOUD BANG echoes through the warehouse, startling the girls.
What the hell was that?!
Could be a wild animal, or worse... those guys that hunt us.
Stay together, everyone. We've got each other's backs.
EXT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE - NIGHT
Armed with makeshift weapons, the girls cautiously step out of the warehouse, only to find themselves surrounded by a group of STRANGERS.
Well, well, well. What do we have here?
Who are you?
Oh, don't worry about us. We're just some lost souls like yourselves.
How can we trust you?
You really can't, but what choice do you have?
You're not going to hurt us... are you?
(smiling) No, of course not. We'll just help you survive... so long as you do something for us in return.
And what would that be?
The LEADER grins menacingly as the camera zooms on his face.
You'll find out soon enough.
TO BE CONTINUED
The Wilds: Deeper Into The Rabbit Hole
INT. TREEHOUSE - MORNING
The girls are scattered about the treehouse in various states of rest. LEAH speaks up, huddled in the corner.
What if?... What if it was someone we know?
Leah, we beat the psycho. Don't go deeper into the rabbit hole.
FATIN, still in her mismatched makeshift outfit, poring over the maps.
She's right. We survived. No turning back now!
How did you find these maps anyway?
The island whispered secrets in my ear.
Palm tree whispers.
INT. TEMPLE - DAY
The girls inspect an ancient temple discovered by MARTHA. RACHEL, giggling with LYNNE, pushes a hidden button, opening a hidden room.
Secret chambers... this is getting interesting.
What now? Expose centuries of forbidden knowledge?
Let's not mess up thousand-year-old stuff, okay?
As they enter, they find a locked chest with strange markings.
Let's solve the clue together. But, what about that Gretchen lady?
EXT. TREEHOUSE - DAY
The girls split into two groups - one stays back to solve the chest puzzle, while the other explores the temple.
INT. TEMPLE CAVERN - DAY
The exploration team finds a room full of bones and tattered clothes.
What happened here? Were they testing other girls before us?
Nah, it's a beach party gone wrong.
Somebody better dig up Gretchen's darkest secrets.
RACHEL, staring at the bones, nods.
Hell yeah, we will.
