the executive producer of the tv show huge is the talented writer winnie holzman. she wrote the script for the musical wicked that was based on the novel by gregory maguire. she created my favorite tv show of all time, my so-called life. she also wrote episodes from tv shows the wonder years and once and again.
"Huge" is a new drama about one life changing experience at a weight-loss camp for teens. Funny, heartbreaking and provocative, "Huge" follows the lives of both the campers and the staff, as they look beneath the surface to discover their true selves and the truth about each other. It's funny, heartbreaking, and provocative -- just like life. It's based on the book Huge - by Sasha Paley.
one of my favorite quotes from the tv show.
..."and as we begin this new day I urge you to be mindful of something...It's good to acknowledge our accomplishments, but it's also good to acknowledge that getting what we think we always wanted can sometimes be very scary. It's often just as things are going really well that we will sabotage ourselves. So just be aware. There may be a self destructive part of us that doesn't want us to get better. That's more comfortable with pain. So remember the more wiling we are to look at the destructive part of ourselves the less power it will have over us."...
