Book to TV?

HUGE will premire June 28 at 9 pm. HUGE follows the lives of seven teens and the staff at a weight-loss camp, as they look beneath the surface to discover their true selves and the truth about each other. Based on author Sasha Paley’s book of the same name, HUGE 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 (“Gossip Girl,” “The Vampire Diaries”) 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.

You know, I've realized that any time a character is overweight in a novel or TV show it is always one of the main plot focus points. Not that there's anything wrong with that but I've yet to read a book where the MC is overweight and that has nothing to do with their storyline. Just like when a character is thin or average weight, the author doesn't dwell on that topic very much at all.
