Tony Oller, Grace Gummern & Gia Mantegna have joined the cast of new TeenNick [Formerly The N] show Gigantic, a new half-hour dramedy that takes a fictional look at the glitzy, chaotic and often hilarious life of being a Hollywood ‘it’ kid. The series is set to premiere early 2010 on TeenNick.
Set in the world of the Hollywood elite packed with A-list parties and privilege, Gigantic tells a coming-of-age story infused with pop culture fame. It’s not easy being teenagers growing up in the shadow of their parents’ superstar status, and Gigantic skewers the celebrity machine while exposing the humanity and comedy beneath the glamour of Tinseltown.
With an insider look behind the tabloids and gossip blogs, the series features an ensemble cast that includes: 17-year-old Anna (Gummer) and her younger brother Walt (Tony Oller), both kids of a famous movie star couple; Anna’s best friend Piper (Jolene Purdy); frenemy Vanessa (Mantegna) and Anna’s boy crush with a big secret Joey (Ryan Rottman).
