Take a sneak peak at Camp TV series

NBC has released a sneak peek video of the US TV series Camp, which was filmed and produced in the Tweed region.

Matchbox Pictures took up residence in the region from January to shoot the drama-comedy and the production company has just completed its last round of filming, before the show goes to air on July 10.

The video offers a glimpse of the locations used around the Tweed Shire, including Crams Farm, Clarrie Hall Dam, Murwillumbah town centre and Tyalgum.

Camp producer Brett Popplewell spoke with My Daily News on June 28 about the building anticipation surrounding the series' pilot episode.

"Obviously it's starting to be advertised around the US at the moment and the excitement's building," he said.

"We're sort of nervous how people will take it."

But despite his mild apprehension surrounding the show's premiere, Mr Popplewell was hopeful the show would fare well with US viewers.

 

"People have got to fall in love with the characters in the show," he said.

"I also think that it will reach a couple of generations, the teenagers and the adults, it covers a few different age groups."

Mr Popplewell said the Tweed had become a "new home" for the Camp actors and crew and he hoped they could return for a second season, which is dependant on the show's initial success.

Camp stars include Rachel Griffiths, who found her fame in Muriel's Wedding in 1994, as well as Underbelly's Rodger Corser, Home and Away's Thom Green and Melbourne Theatre Company's Charles Grounds.

Griffiths plays the owner and director of Little Otter Family Camp Mackenzie Granger, who is dealing with a variety of issues, from relationships, to raising her son as a single mum and dealing with a buyout offer from upscale rival camp owner Roger Shepard.
