nikki June 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) ABC is premiering a new show “Huge” this Monday night at 9 p ET on ABC family, a new series which is about a group of teenagers who are trying to find self confidence, acceptance, and shed a few pounds at a “fat camp.” Nikki Blonsky, star of ‘Hairspray’ and Hayley Hasselhoff, daughter of David Hasselhoff are both signed on to star in the new show.

‘Huge’ is being called a cross between ‘Ugly Betty’ and ‘Glee’ and will also star Zander Eckhouse, who is the son of James Eckhouse. The show was written by the creator of ‘My So Called Life’ Winnie Holzman, along with her daughter, Savannah Dooley.

According to ‘THR’, the “series will revolve around six teens and the staff at Wellness Canyon, a weight-loss camp. It centers on Will (Blonsky), a funny, opinionated overweight girl sent to the camp by her wealthy parents who own a chain of fitness centers, and Amber (Hasselhoff), a curvy teen who is the skinniest and hottest girl at the camp but who considers herself too heavy.”

In a billboard campaign for the show, the plus sized Blonsky can be seen wearing a blue one piece bathing suit, looking quite uncomfortable. The actress says quite the opposite is true however. “I’m just comfortable and confident in my body. I could care less that the world is seeing me in a bathing suit right now. I think they finally know what I look like in a bathing suit, if they were wondering….I feel awesome. I think there’s nothing better than just showing by confidence and showing that I love my body. Why not share it with L.A., New York, everywhere?”
