Cannibalism, witches, friendship, and soccer. This show really has it all!
Are you watching Yellowjackets on Showtime? This is a show that really crept up on me, no pun intended. It seemed like one day, on Twitter, everyone was just talking about it.
I finally had the time to sit down to watch, and I was pleasantly surprised by one of the best pilots in recent memory. The show is about a wildly talented high school girls’ soccer team. After their plane crashes in the remote Canadian wilderness, they descend into savage clans. Simultaneous to that story, we meet them 25 years later, where they discover that what began in the wild is far from over.
The pilot was written by Ashley Lyle & Bart Nickerson, and they did an incredible job of worldbuilding and pilot storytelling.
You can watch the pilot for free right now. Or you can read and download the Yellowjackets pilot script PDF right here!
Today I want to discuss the three best parts of the writing (for me) and what you can learn from the show. Let’s crash land together!
