Does art imitate life for Grace Gummer (daughter of Meryl Streep), who plays Anna, a famous actor's daughter, on TeenNick's new series Gigantic? "Not really," Gummer tells TVGuide.com. "I grew up in a very small town in Connecticut. I was out of that whole [Hollywood] scene. I went to summer camp and I babysat."

Gigantic is set in the world of the young Hollywood elite, where many of the characters grow up in their famous parents' shadows. In the premiere, Anna returns to L.A. after living on a movie set in Australia for two years. A lot can change in two years.

Co-starring are Gia Mantegna (daughter of actor Joe Mantegna) as Anna's stylish frenemy Vanessa, who is a celeb in her own right, and Malcolm David Kelley (Lost's Walt).

In the video below, Gummer and Mantegna talk about what to expect from the Entourage-like show and why every secret in the series is a big deal.

Gigantic premieres Friday at 10/9c on TeenNick
