–Tony Oller will star in TeenNick’s new original series, “Gigantic”. The show is a half-hour dramedy that takes a fictional look at the glitzy, chaotic and often hilarious life of being a Hollywood “it” kid. Shot at various locations around Los Angeles, “Gigantic” features an ensemble cast that includes Grace Gummer and Gia Mantegna as two of the lead characters in the 20-episode series.
The show is TeenNick’s first original scripted show for the channel since it changed over from The N. 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, “10 Things I Hate About You”); frenemy Vanessa (Mantegna) and Anna’s boy crush with a big secret Joey (Ryan Rottman).
The series is set to premiere early 2010 on TeenNick. Congrats to Tony and the cast!
