"Making It BIG" is a Vancouver-based Comedy show meant to take a light-hearted look at the little-known world of Plus-Sized Male Modelling. It could be described as blending the style of “Broad City” with the intelligent absurdity of “Community”, sprinkling in a dash of "Mr. Show"s acerbic wit. It is not "Zoolander, only fatter". Focusing on 2 best friends, Stan and Marv - as they enter the intriguing world of Monica MacClaine's BodyPlus Talent, the pals must navigate the peaks and valleys of success and failure while gaining adversaries, forming alliances - and in the end - Making the Face of the World.. A Little Rounder. Featuring a diverse cast of known and unknown talent.

    Seems like an interesting idea that could mix comedy with dialogue around body image and positivity,
