Killer Camp, the horror/whodunit reality competition format created by Tuesday’s Child Television for ITV2 in the UK and distributed by Keshet International, has been picked up for another local adaptation after scoring a U.S. edition for the CW Network in 2020.

Dutch prodco Skyhigh TV, a Mediawan company, will produce a new 6 x 40-minute version of the series for Amazon Prime Video in the Netherlands, which will premiere later this year.

Hosted by comedian and actor Ruud Smulders, the series will see 11 well-known Dutch influencers dropped off at a retro ’80s-style summer camp, where they will participate in a series of challenges while, unbeknownst to the rest, one of them is plotting a scheme to knock them off one by one. As more and more competitors are “murdered” during the night, the “survivors” must try to figure out the identity of the predator in their midst to claim a share of the €20,000 prize.

“It’s fantastic to be working with Skyhigh TV and Prime Video on our first European adaptation of Killer Camp,” Tuesday’s Child CEO Karen Smith said. “This reality format is a fresh and exciting mix of sexy, young reality and game show, with an intriguing whodunit twist that keeps viewers guessing, and talking about the show.”

Skyhigh’s Marius van Duijn and Martine Tromp will serve as creative director and executive producer, respectively, on the Dutch adaptation of the series. Keshet, which secured the licensing deal, is currently in talks with other production companies and broadcast outlets about potential future European iterations of the format.
