ABC FAMILY TO HOST OPEN CASTING CALLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY FOR ITS NEW SUMMER SERIES, "HUGE"

Casting Calls Will Take Place Beginning Monday, March 1, in Austin, Atlanta, New York, Chicago and Seattle.

Burbank, CA (February 24, 2010) - ABC Family will conduct a series of open casting calls in support of the network's new summer series, "Huge." The open casting calls will take place in Austin, Atlanta, New York, Chicago and Seattle. See below for more details about casting calls in each city.

ABC Family will be looking for talented plus-size individuals to play 15-16 year olds. Actors may be older, but must be believable as mid-teens. Casting is open to actors and non-actor/newcomers. For those who cannot attend, videos can be submitted online at www.abcfamily.com.

"Huge," based on author Sasha Paley's book of the same title, is being developed by Winnie Holzman ("Wicked," "My So-Called Life," "Once & Again") and daughter Savannah Dooley. Holzman will be executive producer on the premiere episode, and will serve as consultant for the remainder of the episodes. Dooley will serve as producer on the series. Alloy Entertainment's Bob Levy and Leslie Morgenstein will serve as executive producers; Robin Schiff ("Romy & Michele's High School Reunion" and ABC Family's "10 Things I Hate About You") will serve as a consulting producer.
