Category: Dead of Summer
There’s not a date yet, but “Dead of Summer” will be on air on Freeform this summer. Richard Hatem (one of the writers) wrote a very interesting post about the show on his facebook page. 😉
And meanwhile, I spend my days in the non-sexy part of Burbank working on “Dead of Summer” (which will be on Freeform sometime — this summer), and I can tell you we are all having a blast. The show was created by Eddy Kitsis & Adam Horowitz & Ian Goldberg, and it has all the fun and heart and flashbacks of “OUAT” — with the addition of some truly frightening supernatural overtones. The hours are great, the people I work with are nice and talented (and super funny, that’s important), and the stories are fun to write. It’s all character stuff, thank God. I don’t have to come up with a smart crime every week and then have an even smarter crime-fighter be super smart in outsmarting the smart criminals. I didn’t get into this line of work because I’m a genius. But writing scary sentimental stories about young people filled with hope and love and ghosts? Save me a chair…

Personal request to Elizabeth: we want a video or at least a pic of you doing handstands. For science. Thank you! 😛
Translation from a French interview.
Solar, passionate and warm, the American actress has only good memories of this European adventure and of her character.
Elizabeth Mitchell talks about her career. In her company the time went by way too fast.
What made you decide to join this completely revised third season of Crossing Lines?
Donald Sutherland … I have always dreamed to work with him. I was also excited to give life to a new female character as strong as Carine. At the moment, there are beautiful roles for women on tv, more different, more memorable, better roles. It’s funny because when I was 18 years old, at the beginning of my career, I was told that I would have had opportunities till 30 years old … Actually I got roles of great heroines since I was 35 years old.
Carine Strand - Crossing Lines - Dead of Summer - Elizabeth Mitchell - Interview - Projects
Second meeting with Elizabeth Mitchell, after Cannes, I met the actress in Paris.
After watching the first three episodes of Crossing Lines season 3 I talked with her about her character: Inspector Carine Strand.
New season, new start!
Does Crossing Lines Season 3 give the impression of a reboot?
Elizabeth Mitchell: “It may be a shock to the public because it is completely different. You know in USA there are Law & Order and Law & Order: SVU, they have the same skeleton but they are completely different. I watched the first two seasons of Crossing Lines and I think there were some very good actors. But I feel that this is a new start for the show.”
How does it feel to be the newest member on set?
Elizabeth Mitchell: “It’s funny because we all started at the same time except for Donald (Sutherland), Tom (Wlaschiba) and Lara (Rossi). It seemed to start something new with great respect for Tom and Lara and what they did before. It felt like it was a new show and it doesn’t give the impression that people were replaced. I did not feel like stealing a role because there were no problem with previous talents. It’s simply a new idea. “

We created the page for “Dead of Summer” (Elizabeth’s upcoming tv show) with more info about it and its characters.
They describe Deb as a woman with “warm and welcoming vibe” used to mask her potentially dark reason for wanting control of the camp.
Season 1 will have 10 episodes and filming starts next month. It’s all we have for now! 🙂
Dead of Summer - Elizabeth Mitchell - Projects - The Purge 3
Freeform’s upcoming camp horror series “Dead of Summer” from the “Once Upon A Time” creators has cast “OUAT” alums Elizabeth Mitchell and Elizabeth Lail in starring roles, Variety has learned.
Both Mitchell and Lail camp counselors in the summer camp themed horror anthology project. On “Once Upon A Time,” Mitchell played the Snow Queen throughout Season 4, and Lail played Anna in the ABC show’s “Frozen” storyline.
Created by “Once Upon A Time” creators Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis and writer Ian Goldberg, “Dead of Summer” is set in the late ’80s at Camp Stillwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp known for first loves, first kisses — and first kills. Throughout the first season, Stillwater’s dark, ancient mythology awakens and what was supposed to be a summer of fun turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.
Mitchell will play Deb, the new owner of Camp Stillwater. Once a camper herself, Deb has her heart set on bringing back the magic of the summer camp she loved, but behind closed doors, she seems to value her control over the camp for a much darker reason.
Lail has been cast as Amy, a clever but nervous camp counselor who is new to Camp Clearwater. Amy is not unfamiliar with being the new girl in social situations and the pitfalls that come with it, so she tries hard to fit in with the other counselors, and others reminisce about their past summers at camp, Amy is the first to discover clues that something disturbing is going on at Stillwater.
The duo joins previously announced “Dead of Summer” counselors Zelda Williams (“Teen Wolf”), Mark Indelicato (“Ugly Betty”), Alberto Frezza (“Charlie’s Angels”), Eli Goree (“The 100”), Ronen Rubenstein (“Orange Is The New Black”) and Paulina Singer (“Gotham”).
“Dead of Summer” landed a straight-to-series order this past November. Horowitz, Kitsis and Goldberg are writing and exec producing the series with Horowitz and Kitsis directing the first episode. ABC Signature Studios will produce.
Production begins on “Dead of Summer” in March. No premiere date has been set.
Mitchell also starred in “Lost,” “Revolution” and will next be seen in “The Purge 3,” which is slated for a summer release. She is repped by Paradigm and Link Entertainment. Lail is repped by ICM and Authentic.
Set in the late 1980s, school is out for the summer, and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Stillwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses – and first kills. Stillwater’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.
