ITV2 is getting sensationally scary this Halloween with brand new show, Killer Camp.
In this reality event, airing across five nights leading up to Halloween, 11 unsuspecting contributors will be dropped into an 80s inspired lakeside lodge where, after an explosive twist, they learn it’s not the Summer Camp they’d envisaged but a Killer Camp with a secret murderer amongst them.
The aim of the game is to earn cash whilst avoiding being killed and therefore eliminated from the game. Over five bloody nights the murderer will bump off their fellow campers in ever more extreme, hilarious and inventive ways; it’s the job of the innocents to work out who is responsible before it’s too late...
Can the innocents find the killer amongst them and walk away with a big money prize? Or will the killer remain undetected and steal their cash?
Comedian Bobby Mair takes on presenting duties as Camp Counsellor. He says:
“Being a presenter, Camp Counsellor and facilitator of murder is the job I was born to do! I really hope ITV2 viewers have as much fun watching this show as much as I had getting to make it.”
James Donkin, Series Editor for Tuesday’s Child, says:
“Killer Camp has betrayal, romance and horror throwback nostalgia at its core, all wrapped up with a glorious 80s bow. We hope the boxset-bingeing twists, alongside the overarching ‘whodunnit’ narrative will hook viewers in and keep them locked, until the big reveal on Halloween night.”
Steph Harris, Executive Producer for Tuesday’s Child, adds:
“The contestants become real life stars of their very own horror movie. Shot in a beautiful lakeside campsite with cinematic production values at the core, we can’t wait to unveil this Halloween spectacular, in all its terrifying and hilarious glory, on the Great British public in October.”
Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, says:
“ITV2 has, for the last few years, celebrated Halloween with specials of some of our regular series and specifically commissioned pieces. This year Halloween Week on the channel will be bigger than ever with the wonderfully realised ‘Killer Camp’ our new crazy, scary, stripped series at its heart”.
The 5 x 60’ series will be made by Tuesday’s Child and has been commissioned for ITV2 by Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions and Peter Tierney, Entertainment Commissioning Editor. Executive Producer for Tuesday’s Child is Steph Harris, Series Editor is James Donkin and the Series Producer is Ben Wilson. Keshet International will distribute both the format and finished tape of Killer Camp internationally, officially launching it next week at MIPCOM 2019.
