New Show HUGE: Ugly Betty Meets Glee; Drop Dead Diva For Teens

Huge TV Series
"Ugly Betty Meets Glee" is how Entertainment Weekly describes it. I thought this was gonna be a reality series, ala Biggest Loser, when I first heard about it so I did not bother finding more about the show (am not a Biggest Loser viewer).

Huge is, in fact, a series based on this novel by Sasha Paley. It's basically drama in a fat camp for young adults. TV show stars Nikki Blonsky from Hairspray as well as David Hasselhoff's daughter, Hayley.

Early reviews say the show has talented cast members and approach to a touchy subject, such as the weight, is honest yet sensitive.

Here's a short clip. It looks interesting:

The series premieres tonight on ABC Family.
