USA NETWORK EXPANDS REALITY SLATE WITH SERIES ORDER FOR "SUMMER CAMP" (Working Title)

Viewers Will Embark On An Action-Packed Summer Adventure And Indulge In The Ultimate Camp Experience

Competition Series From "Big Brother" Producers Set To Premiere In Summer 2013

Characters Welcome.

NEW YORK - February 28, 2013 - USA Network today gave an eight-episode order for the action-packed reality series SUMMER CAMP, set to premiere this summer. From Emmy(R)-Award winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan ("Big Brother") and Fly on the Wall Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television, this fun-filled and escapist series sends die-hard campers back to the most cherished place of their youth for the thrill of a lifetime. The announcement was made today by Heather Olander, Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming for USA Network, and marks the fourth reality series pickup for the network.

In SUMMER CAMP, viewers will meet an eclectic group of 16 adults from all walks of life - from the fanatic hunter to the former nerd-turned-supermodel to the vegan yoga instructor. Campers will pack their bags and head to an idyllic lakeside retreat, where they will indulge in over-to-top competitions inspired by classic camp games. At the end of the summer, the remaining competitors face off in the "Campathalon," an ultimate Olympic style event.

"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 Olander. "Our audience will be transported back to some of their best summer moments. We are excited to chronicle this adventure with Fly on the Wall Entertainment, one of the leading storytellers in this genre."

SUMMER CAMP joins three new reality series on USA: THE MOMENT, premiering April 11, is hosted by former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and gives nine individuals the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to unleash their inner passions and rediscover their dream career; THE CHOIR, based on the hit UK series, follows the distinct and charming choirmaster Gareth Malone who unites an unexpected mix of characters through the spellbinding power of music; and PARTNERS IN CRIME, a docu-soap that dives inside the world of Staten Island's most colorful criminal defense attorneys, as they tackle infamous cases and navigate their unpredictable relationship.

The network recently shot a pilot for BRIDE OR BEST MAN (working title), highlighting a trip down the aisle, where anything can happen when the groom and his best man are left in charge of planning the big day. A second pilot in production, ALL IN (working title) sends one unsuspecting family on the ultimate gaming adventure with the country's winningest handicapper, Brandon Lang.

Fly On The Wall Entertainment is headed by Emmy award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan. The pair have overseen one of the most popular reality franchises on broadcast television, CBS' "Big Brother," going into its 15th season this summer. From competition to documentaries and docu-series, they have developed, created, and produced hundreds of hours of unscripted programming including the recent Big Rich franchise for Style Network.
