ABC Family Announces Premiere Dates For New Shows, ‘Pretty Little Liars’ And ‘Huge’!

By George Loomis III

ABC Family announced huge news today via Twitter when they announced the premiere dates for two brand spanking new shows we’re dying to see. Better start making viewing party plans soon because these dramas are right around the corner. “Pretty Little Liars” will premiere on June 8 at 8p.m. EST, followed by “Huge” on June 28 at 9 p.m. EST.

“Pretty Little Liars” — which will, p.s., so be known as simply “PLL” — puts a new spin on the teen gossip genre, following the lives of high school juniors Spencer, Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily, and Hanna (Ashley Benson). The four pretty little liars have been hiding a horrible secret since sixth grade, and someone named “A” now has the knowledge to bury them! Based on the novels by Sara Shepard, “PLL” dives head first into Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where these girls are about to be exposed…

Leaving Rosewood, ABC Fam takes us to Wellness Canyon for “Huge,” where we’ll meet six teens attending and working at a weight-loss camp. Just like “PLL,” “Huge” is based on a novel and boasts seriously juicy dramatic potential. Expect to see some familiar faces in the cast like Nikki Blonsky of “Hairspray” fame, as well as some new ones like Hayley Hasselhoff, daughter of David; Nikki and Hayley’s characters do NOT get along, and on June 28 it all goes down!

What are you doing to prepare for these premieres, besides reading the “PLL” books and/or the “Huge” novel by Sasha Paley?
