Both Mitchell and Lail camp counselors in the summer camp themed horror anthology project. On “Once Upon A Time,” Mitchell played the Snow Queen throughout Season 4, and Lail played Anna in the ABC show’s “Frozen” storyline.
Created by “Once Upon A Time” creators Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis and writer Ian Goldberg, “Dead of Summer” is set in the late ’80s at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp known for first loves, first kisses — and first kills.

Mitchell will play Deb, the new owner of Camp Clearwater. »
