Dramedy follows children of A-list celebs

The N is making a "Gigantic" dramedy bet, picking up a half-hour series from veteran producers Marti Noxon and Dawn Parouse.

The N, which will be renamed TeenNick in the fall, has ordered 13 episodes from the new show, produced by Reveille.

"Gigantic" takes a skewering look at the glitzy, chaotic and oftentimes hilarious life of Hollywood "it" kids whose parents are A-list celebrities. It is described as a coming-of-age story set in the world of the Hollywood elite packed with parties and privilege.

The project also will feature testimonials by real-life Hollywood teens as well as celebrity cameos.

Noxon and Parouse serve as executive producers/showrunners of "Gigantic," which will go into production this year.

The series marks the second collaboration between Reveille and the N. The production company also produced the cable channel's reality competition series "Student Body."

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" alumna Noxon recently served as exec producer/showrunner on ABC's "Private Practice" and did a stint on AMC's "Mad Men."

Nonwriting producer Parouse exec produced Fox's "Prison Break."
