Move over, Hoff – there’s a new Hasselhoff in town. David Hasselhoff’s daughter Hayley has landed a leading role alongside ‘Hairspray‘ star Nikki Blonsky in a new ABC Family series called ‘Huge’ about kids struggling with their weight at a fat camp, says The Hollywood Reporter.

ABC Family has ordered ten episodes of the comedy series, which focuses on six teens who attend the fictional Wellness Canyon, a weight-loss camp.

Hasselhoff will play curvy Amber, “the hottest, thinnest girl at the camp.” Blonsky will play the “opinionated” Will, the maligned-but-wealthy daughter of fitness instructors. And another celebrity spawn, Zander Eckhouse, son of James Eckhouse (our fave dad on ‘90210‘), has been cast as a cute camp counselor interested in Amber.

The show, which is scheduled to premiere in late June, is written by ‘My So-Called Life‘ creator Winnie Holzman and her daughter Savannah Dooley, and is described as ‘Glee‘ meets ‘Ugly Betty.’
