The Covid-19 pandemic forced networks to get creative to fill their primetime schedules. The CW turned to ITV for content, snagging the reality competition series Killer Camp and making it part of their summertime programming lineup.
The British series will premiere on The CW on July 16, 2020, with new episodes arriving on Thursdays at 8pm ET/PT. Episode one, “A Killer in the Camp,” was directed by Mike Parker. Comedian Bobby Mair hosts the first (and so far, only) season and plays the Camp Counselor.
The CW just released photos, plot details, and a teaser trailer showing off what’s in store for Killer Camp episode one viewers.
