Tyra Banks Lands Scripted Series

indiewire.com

Former supermodel and media mogul Tyra Banks has already staked her claim to reality television with the hugely popular "America's Next Top Model." So it would only makes sense that Banks' next venture into television was the scripted series. According to reports, Banks has teamed up with ABC to present "Fivehead," a series based on her teenage years and her subsequent life as a model.

“In high school, if you have glasses, you’re a ‘four eyes’, if you have braces, you’re a ‘metal mouth’ but if you had my forehead? You’re a FIVEHEAD,” Banks reportedly said. Her childhood friend Kenya Barris, industry veteran behind "Soul Food," "Girlfriends," "The Game," and "ANTM," will partner with Banks to write the script and serve as co-creator and co-executive producer. "To be able to witness her career was wild, but to be able to watch Tyra grow up was nothing short of nutty…" Barris reportedly said.  "I am blown away by the opportunity to tell not just a great story but a story that I remember so fondly."
