Huge Executive Producer: "You Don't Need to be Fat to Relate" to Series


ABC Family's Huge takes place at a weight-loss camp, but executive producer Winnie Holzman says, "You don't need to be fat or have a weight issue to relate to it." The series (Mondays at 9/8c) follows a diverse group of teens. Willamina (Nikki Blonsky) is an outsider who sets out to gain weight to anger her parents, while Amber (Hayley Hasselhoff) is the camp's "golden girl" — with a lot less confidence than it appears. Although different from Holzman's previous shows My So-Called Life and Once and Again, Huge similarly focuses on the scariness of change as the characters struggle and try to figure out who they are.

Wilson Cruz, My So-Called Life

Back in 1994, one of the best series never to make it was born: My So-Called Life, a teen drama with such heart and truthfulness that many (including its network) didn't know what to make of it. For anyone who was a teenager — or an overgrown teenager — back then and watched each week with bated breath, the complete series is being released today on DVD in a special collectible set. talked to Wilson Cruz, now 34, whose Rickie Vasquez had one of the show's most poignant storylines, about the show's legacy. After more than a decade, why does My So-Called Life still speak to people so much?Wilson Cruz: I think it took its audience really seriously but didn't take itself too seriously.
