Bunks is a new live-action film from Fresh TV (which also produced My Babysitter's a Vampire, both film and TV series, still awaiting season 3 confirmation) which will air on Disney XD Canada, Sunday, October 27, 2013 at 8PM ET. Atticus Mitchell has a role in the movie as Wookie, the camp counselor. Below is a press release, posted by Fresh TV; photos are below, courtesy of Fresh TV.
True to Fresh TV form, BUNKS is not your average coming-of-age story. Nor is it your typical teen TV show. BUNKS is what happens when two trouble-making brothers finally meet their match and accidentally unleash a curse on their summer camp that brings every campfire story to life. And did someone just tell a story about a zombie apocalypse?!
Ever since they were in diapers, seventeen-year-old Dane has been convincing his younger brother Dylan to help him pull off epic pranks. Their biggest prank ever earns them a summer at military camp, but with a few taps on his tablet, Dylan reroutes them to Camp Bushwhack. The plan: to fake their way through being camp counsellors in Ontario’s beautiful wilderness.
Once those zombies start showing up, the brothers are going to have to step up if they want to save their rag tag cabin of eleven-year-olds from the undead menace they unwittingly set in motion!
Combining the heart and hilarity of classic summer camp movies with the thrills and chills of a zombie horror flick, BUNKS is everything that is awesome and awful about spending the entire summer in the woods with your bro.
BUNKS was shot this summer in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Kenora, Ontario. It stars Dylan Schmid (Once Upon A Time, The Haunting Hour) as Dylan O’Reilly and Aidan Shipley (Rookie Blue, What’s Up Warthogs and Flashpoint) as Dane O’Reilly. Featured performers include: Atticus Mitchell (My Babysitter’s a Vampire) as Wookie, the Camp Counselor and Christian Potenza (Total Drama, 6TEEN) as Crawl, the Camp Director.
BUNKS was created by Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch and developed by Fresh TV. Produced by Fresh TV and Inferno Pictures in association with Disney XD Canada and FremantleMedia.
