-Check out some new promo pictures from TeenNick’s upcoming show “Gigantic.” The show is a 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 show stars Grace Gummer (daughter of actress Meryl Streep) and Gia Mantegna (daughter of actor Joe Mantegna) as two of the lead characters in the 18-episode series. 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). Malcolm David Kelley also stars.
