'Camp': Rachel Griffiths heads up a fun summer romp on NBC
There's a fun new show coming to NBC this summer -- "Camp," starring Rachel Griffiths as Mackenzie Granger, the owner and director of Little Otter Family Camp, "where Mother Nature and human nature collide."
The show description from the network has us seriously excited about this summer romp:
Still reeling from her recent divorce, Mackenzie is ready for a fresh start. She is running things on her own for the first time and scrambling to keep the cash-strapped Little Otter from going under. She considers a buyout offer from Roger Shepard (Rodger Corser, "Underbelly"), the arrogant but sexy owner of the upscale camp across the lake. Despite her better judgment, their love-hate relationship quickly escalates. Meanwhile, she begins to realize that her charming but much younger handyman, Cole (Nikolai Nikolaeff, "Sea Patrol"), might be interested in more than just a professional relationship.
In the midst of all this, Mackenzie is struggling to be a single parent to her son Buzz (Charles Grounds), a counselor-in-training at Little Otter this year. A brash, exuberant oddball, Buzz commits himself to losing his virginity by the end of the summer. He makes fast friends with Kip Wampler (Thom Green, "Dance Academy"), a more reserved fellow CIT who is hiding a secret. Kip has fallen hard for Marina Barker (Lily Sullivan, "Mental"), a gorgeous, misunderstood CIT who has come to camp to reinvent herself.
Senior counselors Robbie Matthews (Tim Pocock, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine") and Sarah Brennen (Dena Kaplan, "Dance Academy") met as youngsters at Little Otter and have fallen in love over the years. The two pick up every summer where they left off, but when the sexy, older writer of Sarah's favorite book moves in across the lake, their relationship suddenly gets a lot more complicated.
