Monday, news broke that ABC Family had canceled groundbreaking series Huge. Tuesday, we started a petition to save Huge. Wednesday, Huge star Nikki Blonsky contacted us, offering her sincere thanks. Last night we asked some questions.
ABC Family has cancelled Huge, the show created by My-So-Called Life's Winnie Holzman and her daughter, Savannah Dooley. And it's such a shame.
Last night's episode of Huge — the fat camp drama from My So-Called Life's Winnie Holzman — dealt with Parents' Day, giving us a chance to see painfully embarrassing parents, and how weight plays a part in the family dynamic.
Last night on Huge — a show from the creator of My So-Called Life — Camp Victory held a weigh-in. The face of each camper stepping on the scale told a different story: Anxious, terrified, excited, nervous, pessimistic, hopeful.
It's impressive how much gets packed into this show: Lying, cheating, stealing, nice guys, guys who are no good, jealousy, toxic friendships, keeping up appearances, managing expectations. But some of the best moments are the quick hits, the one-liners.
In the wake of cringe-worthy TV shows like More To Love, Dance Your Ass Off and the Biggest Loser, are the new weight-oriented series — Huge and Mike and Molly — a step in the right direction?
The second episode of fat-camp show Huge — created by My So Called Life's Winnie Holzman and her daughter, Savannah Dooley — included a scene right after our women's mag-mocking hearts.
ABC Family's Huge premiered last night. Written by My So-Called Life creator Winnie Holzman — and her 24-year-old daughter, Savannah Dooley — the show introduced us to Camp Victory, where weight loss is the focus.
