Screening Of ABC's "Once Upon A Time" Season 4 - ArrivalsIf you love "Once Upon a Time," you're in luck: The show's creators are making a brand new series for ABC Family.



Pretty Little Liars" doesn't count.)



The show will be called "Dead of Summer," and "is about what happens when summer camp goes wrong -- really, really wrong," according to Karey Burke, executive vice president of programming for ABC Family. And EW says that it has some pretty cool influences: The scuttlebut is that "the show was originally pitched as a 'John Hughes meets John Carpenter' anthology series, with the first season set in 1989." Very intriguing.



Here's the official logline:

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.



No word yet on when "Dead of Summer" is set to debut, though its title suggests it would make a great late-summer series. Stay tuned.
