Freeform has announced the casting of Zelda Williams (TEEN WOLF), Alberto Frezza (CHARLIE’S ANGELS) and Eli Goree (The 100) for DEAD OF SUMMER, the new series created by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis (ONCE UPON A TIME). Williams, Frezza and Goree join already announced cast members Mark Indelicate (UGLY BETTY), Ronen Rubinstein (ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK) and Paulina Singer (GOTHAM).
“Set in the late 1980s, school is out for the summer and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses—and first kills. Clearwater’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. Part coming-of-age story, part supernatural horror story, DEAD OF SUMMER is a bold, new series that mixes genres as it examines the light and dark of a summer like no other. Williams will be portraying a counselor at Camp Clearwater who is a mysterious loner with no interest in bonding with the rest of the group.”
Production on DEAD OF SUMMER will begin in March.
