Showtime announced Tuesday that the pay cabler is moving forward with a drama project, ordering a pilot for “Yellowjackets”
The project comes from creators Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, with the pilot to be executive produced and directed by Karyn Kusama. Lyle and Nickerson are executive producers and showrunners.
In its announcement, Showtime says “Yellowjackets” is “equal parts survival epic, horror story and coming-of-age drama and tells the narrative of a team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the Ontario wilderness. The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to warring, cannibalistic 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.”
