Gigantic was a show on TeenNick, developed by Marti Noxon. It is a comedy drama set in Hollywood, focusing on several children with famous parents trying to carve out identities for themselves separate from their parents. The show started in 2010 and was canceled at the end of its first season in April 2011.

Tropes featured in this show include:

  • The Beard: Sasha, to Ryan.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing:
    • Vanessa King plays with this. She's cutthroat, but she's not overly harsh either.
    • Maggie Ritter shows she's willing to resort to extortion and sleeping with her agent in order to get ahead in acting.
  • Teen Drama
  • Teen Pregnancy: Lulu, prior to the start of the show.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Lulu didn't know that reality-show "confessionals" are taped. She confessed that Joey isn't really the father of her baby before she realized there was a camera in the room.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Jennifer and John didn't have a problem at first with Joey seeing Lulu while he and Anna were apart because Anna was seeing Russell in Australia. What they did have a problem with was when Lulu supposedly got pregnant with Joey's child and became very strict about refusing to let Anna see him. Anna attributed this to them protecting their own careers, but it's clear they do love their daughter, wanted to protect her and didn't mean to drive her away.


How well does it match the trope?
