Production begins today in Vancouver, Canada, on Freeform’s highly anticipated new original 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, Elizabeth Lail, Zelda Williams, Mark Indelicato, Alberto Frezza, Eli Goree, Ronen Rubinstein, Amber Coney and Paulina Singer.
‘Dead of Summer’ is produced by ABC Signature Studios and Kitsis/Horowitz. Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis and Ian Goldberg write and executive-produce the series. Steve Pearlman serves as executive producer. Horowitz will direct the first episode.
