USA Goes to ‘Summer Camp’

New competition series has individuals revisiting their youth

USA Network is increasing its reality output with the series pickup of “Summer Camp.”

Set to premiere in summer, new series sends adults back to the camp experiences of their youth where they will engage in competitions inspired by classic camp games.

Show, which will be exec produced by Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, comes from Sony Pictures Television and Fly on the Wall Entertainment.

“This series marries a fun, energizing and nostalgic concept with quirky characters who will captivate our viewers as they attempt to reclaim, or perhaps reinvent, their youth,” said USA’s reality topper Heather Olander.

Move marks the continued expansion of USA’s reality ambitions for 2013. Cabler, which is making a big reality commitment beyond its longtime WWE association, already has three other shows on tap as well as two pilots.

“The Moment,” hosted by former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and scheduled for an April 11 launch, gives individuals a chance to restart their career dreams.

The Choir” is based on a popular U.K. series and follows choirmaster Gareth Malone, who unites an unexpected mix of characters through the power of music.

There’s also “Partners in Crime,” a docusoap that dives inside the world of Staten Island, N.Y.’s most colorful criminal defense attorneys as they tackle infamous cases and navigate their unpredictable relationship.

Neither “The Choir” nor “Partners in Crime” have debut dates set.

In pilot mode are “Bride or Best Man,” where a bridegroom and his best man are in charge of planning a wedding, and “All In,” where an unsuspecting family goes on a gambling adventure with handicapper Brandon Lang.
