Gigantic is an American television series that aired on TeenNick from 2010-2011. Starring Grace Gummer, the show is a drama-comedy centered around the lives of the wealthy and famous teenagers attending a prestigious high school in Los Angeles called the "Prep." The show mainly revolves around the young and idealistic Anna Moore (Gummer), daughter of Hollywood's most powerful producers – Trent and Piper Moore. Anna is a hardworking and ambitious student, struggling to find her place in the world amongst her peers, who are all children of Hollywood celebrities. Unlike her privileged classmates, Anna is determined to make her mark through her own hard work and dedication.

Throughout the series, the audience is introduced to Anna's friends, including her best friend Piper Katins (Jolene Purdy), a talented singer who becomes romantically involved with Anna's brother, Walt (Tony Oller). Another member of their posse is Vanessa King (Megan Park), an actress focused on developing her career but facing challenges and loneliness. Finally, we have Joey Colvin (Malcolm David Kelley), a basketball player and budding music artist aiming to carve out a career path.

The show explores themes such as love, friendship, loyalty, family, and identity. Anna often grapples with the pressures of living up to the expectations of her parents and the Hollywood elite around her. Throughout the series, Anna frequently struggles to balance her relationships with her friends and her family while keeping her eye on the prize of achieving academic success and creating a name for herself. Despite the support of her friends and family, Anna is thrust into many situations of angst and confusion that any teenager would relate to, especially when one is trying to build their own identity in the shadow of Hollywood's rich and famous.

Anna is a lovable character who is always up for the good fight, particularly when it comes to her friends. Her determination to succeed at her dream of being a writer is admirable, and her unwavering loyalty to her friends makes her one of the most likable characters on the show. Each episode brings new conflicts that Anna and her friends must overcome, but the story always circles back to the intricate web of relationships within the Prep School, bolstered by the powerful influence of Hollywood.

One standout aspect of the show is its unique depiction of Hollywood and its culture through the eyes of teenagers. It is fascinating to see Hollywood's next generation in all of its glory and spectacle – complete with the lavish parties, designer wardrobes, and red carpet events that are commonplace among the teens in this high school.

Overall, Gigantic is an enjoyable and engaging teen show that manages to incorporate humor, drama, and the realities of life in Hollywood into a cohesive and entertaining storyline. The characters are well-developed, and the situations they find themselves in are relatable, despite their unique backgrounds. Teen viewers, in particular, will appreciate the show's portrayal of the challenges and triumphs of adolescence and the unbreakable bonds of friendship.

Gigantic is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (18 episodes). The series first aired on October 8, 2010.
