Bunk’d TV show to premiere on Disney Channel July 31

Wet Hot American Summer won’t be the only summer camp TV show premiering on July 31. Jessie summer camp spin-off BUNK’D will premiere on Friday, July 31 on the Disney Channel.

According to a press release, BUNK’D:

Follows siblings Emma, Ravi and Zuri Ross as they embark on their summer at Camp Kikiwaka, a rustic summer camp in Maine where their parents met as teenagers. Emma and Ravi step into new roles as CITs (Counselor In Training), learning how to be resourceful, responsible role models to their campers. Lou, the cheerful head counselor, and Xander, the camp heartthrob, befriend the Ross kids, who are complete fish out of water in the great outdoors, and step in to show them the ropes. Zuri makes new friends with her fellow campers, the anxious and overly studious Tiffany and compulsive fibber Jorge. Along with their new friends, Emma, Ravi and Zuri adapt to their new ‘home away from home’ and settle into their exciting new lives at Camp Kikiwaka.

In the first episode, the Ross kids arrive at camp from New York City and discover that camp owner Gladys is “even scarier than the legendary creature that’s rumored to stalk the grounds.” Production began in late April and shooting in early May. The series was created by Pamela Eells O’Connell (Jessie, Family Matters, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, The Suite Life on Deck)
