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.

Check out the sneak peek above and then let us know what you think in the comments. Are you excited to go to “Camp”?
