NBC greenlights 'Camp'

This one time, at NBC’s “Camp”…


The Peacock Network announced Sunday that it greenlit an hourlong, 13- episode drama about life at a summer camp.

The show is executive produced by“Deception’s” Liz Heldens and Peter Elkoff (also “Gossip Girl”).

“Camp,” which is set for this summer, is expected to be like “Meatballs” and “Dazed and Confused.” It is set at Little Hawk Family Camp. Parents relax with a cocktail while the kiddies cause trouble and find romantic entanglements. The camp is described as a “slice of heaven” by NBC.

"In our desire to make summer an exciting place at NBC along with our signature unscripted shows like 'America's Got Talent,' 'The Voice' and 'American Ninja Warrior,' we developed a scripted dramedy we love with BermanBraun that has rich and dysfunctional characters in that great setting where millions of families and young people go each summer: camp,” Jennifer Salke, NBC president of entertainment, said.

Production on camp will begin in March in Australia. Casting is yet to be announced.

“This show … is sophisticated, funny, and emotional, and we think it will be the ideal summer series for us,” Salke said.

"Deception" starts Monday at 10 ET.
