'My So-Called Life's' Winnie Holzman is writing the project with her daughter, Savannah Dooley, from a book by Sasha Paley. The show is already being compared to 'Glee' and 'Ugly Betty,' so expect it to be a hit.

'Huge' will officially get its big debut in June, under a 10-episode order.

Blonsky recently guested on an episode of 'Ugly Betty.'
