NBC has firmed up its summer schedule, setting premiere dates and slots for four more series, unscripted Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls and American Ninja Warrior and scripted Camp and Save Me.

As previously announced, America’s Got Talent returns for an eighth season on Tuesday, June 4. The veteran variety series will add Wednesday 9-10 PM editions on July 10 when it will be followed by the premiere of Camp, a new summer lower-budget dramedy set at a summer camp, shot in Australia and featuring all-Australian cast. Airing in the Wednesday 10 PM slot, it stars Rachel Griffiths and hails from creators Liz Heldens and Peter Elkoff, Matchbox Pictures and BermanBraun.

Save Me has finally gotten a spot on the schedule, nearly a year after the Anne Heche-starring dark comedy received an early series pickup. Originally slated for midseason, Save Me will debut on the first night of off-season, Thursday, May 23 and air in burnoff fashion with back-to-back episodes at 8 and 8:30 PM. New adventure competition series Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls, co-produced by Grylls and Electus, will debut on July 8 and air in the Monday 9-10 PM slot. It will be paired with Esquire Network’s American Ninja Warrior, which will return to the NBC lineup with a two-hour special on Monday, July 1. Starting July 8, it will air in the Monday 8-9 PM slot, leading to Get Out Alive.
