Huge is an Creator/ABCFamily network television series developed by Winnie Holzman, of ''Series/{{My So Called Life}}'' fame, with her daughter Savannah Dooley, based on the young-adult novel of the same name by Sasha Paley. The hour-long drama series revolved around seven teens sent to a summer weight-loss camp called Camp Victory. In addition to the usual teen drama it examined issues of body image and societal expectations on weight. Unfortunately, it was canceled in October 2010 after 10 episodes.

----
!!This series provides examples of:

* AdaptationDistillation/[[AdaptationExpansion Expansion]]: The TV series takes the basic premise and setting of the book, which is essentially an ad for weight-loss camp, and gives it a [[BeYourself body-positive message]] instead.
* {{Adorkable}}: Ian
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: See LoveDodecahedron, below.
* AlphaBitch: Chloe
* AmbiguouslyGay: Alistair, to the other kids. He prefers to see people as individuals rather than pay attention to gender, but [[spoiler: we do know he has a thing for Trent.]]
* {{Asexual}}: Poppy. Quite possibly the first character on American television to identify as such.
* BeYourself: The show is Anvilicious regarding the need to accept your own body and identity.
* BigBeautifulWoman: Amber, who has the entire male population of the camp (not to mention George, one of the counselors) fawning over her. Unfortunately she can't seem to acknowledge it due to her skewed perception of her weight.
* BigEater: The camp attempts to repress such behavior.
* {{Bookworm}}: Becca is seen reading a book at least once every episode. She also writes in her diary in runes.
* CloudCuckooLander: Alistair can be seen as this and Poppy has her moments.
* CoolOldGuy: Dr. Rand's father
* DeadPanSnarker: Will
* DrillSergeantNasty: Shay
* EmbarrassingFirstName: [[spoiler: Dante]] Piznarski. One has to wonder how 'Piz' is more dignified.
* FanNickname: Rand's father is often called 'Salty Dad'.
* FatAndProud: Will. And the entire message of the show is against shaming fat people and being proud of yourself no matter what your weight is.
* FatCamp: Camp Victory
* FatIdiot, FatBastard, FatSlob: Totally averted. If anything the real 'villain' of ''Huge'' is the societal idea that being fat makes you a bad person.
* HollywoodDarkness: All of the outdoor nighttime scenes look like daytime, only more blue.
* LoveDodecahedron: Dante likes Chloe, who likes Trent. Will likes Ian, who likes Amber, who likes George, who likes her back, but doesn't think they should pursue a relationship because she's a camper and he's a counselor. All of this makes Poppy grateful that she's asexual.
* MagicalNativeAmerican: George is chosen to lead the Spirit Quest because his grandfather was Native American, under the assumption of this trope. However, when George calls his grandfather for advice, [[spoiler: it turns out he's dead. Not very helpful.]]
* MeaningfulRename: Alistair takes the name 'Athena' as his spirit name during the spirit quest. The other boys alternately use it as a term of derision and affection, although he doesn't use it on a regular basis.
* MyBelovedSmother: Danielle's family. However, Danielle doesn't seem to mind and [[spoiler: has a panic attack the moment they leave.]]
* ShowWithinAShow: "Love Handles", a reality TV show akin to 'Who Wants To Marry a Millionaire''.
* {{Short Runner|s}}: Lasted a grand total of ten episodes.
* ShrinkingViolet: Becca
* StrawFeminist: Will
* SupremeChef: Dr. Rand's father
* {{Transsexual}}: Alistair/Athena is implied to be transgender or genderqueer. The season 1 finale starts to explore this storyline more than the previous episodes. Too bad that was the last episode...
* VisionQuest
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Caitlin and Danielle were introduced in the first and second episodes, respectively. Both of them seemed like interesting characters, but they were each {{Put On A Bus}} by the end of the episode in which they were introduced.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Will (well, blue streaks anyway.)
