The pair will play married couple Liv and Will in the series, which is based on B E Jones's novel of the same name. It will follow the pair as they take a trip around America’s epic National Parks, with Will unaware that Liv knows he is having an affair and plans to get revenge.

The series has been created and executive produced by Marnie Dickens (Thirteen, Gold Digger) and is currently in production. But when will it be released?

What is Wilderness about?

The official synopsis for the series says: "Based on B E Jones’s 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... Wilderness is a twisted love story, where a dream holiday and a supposedly "happily-ever-after" quickly turns into a living nightmare."
