NBC Orders Summer Drama ‘Camp’

Network orders 13 episodes of series from "Deception" producers Liz Heldens and Peter Elkoff

NBC has ordered 13 episodes of the new drama "Camp" for summer, the network announced Sunday.

The show — which NBC calls a "sly" drama in the tradition of the comedies "Meatballs" and "Dazed and Confused" — comes from "Deception" creator Liz Heldens and "Deception" co-executive producer Peter Elkoff. 

The series follows adults who "decompress with gin while teenagers make gleeful mischief and fall in and out of love."

The series will be produced by Matchbox Pictures (“The Slap”) and BermanBraun. Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein (“Deception”) also are executive producers.

Production is scheduled to begin in Australia in March, and casting will be named at a later date.

NBC made the announcements at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
