Camp Stillwater Re-Opens For Business
Highly Anticipated New Series Dead Of Summer Starts Production In Vancouver
Series set to premiere on ABC Spark Summer 2016
Toronto, Canada – Production begins today in Vancouver, Canada, the highly anticipated new series Dead of Summer, a bold, new show that examines the light and dark of a summer like no other.
Set in the late 1980s, school is out for the summer, and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Stillwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses—and first kills. Stillwater’s dark, ancient mythology awakens, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.
The series stars Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost, The Purge: Election Year), Elizabeth Lail (Once Upon a Time), Zelda Williams (Teen Wolf), Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty), Alberto Frezza (Charlie’s Angels), Eli Goree (The 100), Ronen Rubinstein (Orange Is the New Black), Amber Coney (Class) and Paulina Singer (Gotham).
Dead of Summer is produced by ABC Signature Studios and Kitsis/Horowitz. Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis (Once Upon a Time, Lost) and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) write and executive-produce the series. Steve Pearlman (Once Upon a Time) serves as executive producer. Horowitz will direct the first episode.
