LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The Hollywood lifestyles of rich and famous kids are at the center of a new series to air on teen-centric channel The N.

The N, which will be renamed TeenNick in the fall, has ordered 13 episodes of the half-hour comedy-drama "Gigantic."

The show 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 showbiz elite, packed with parties and privilege.

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