UPN has picked up for midseason eight one-hour episodes of tentatively titled
reality series Supermodel, which will feature a talent search for the
next Cindy Crawford, UPN Entertainment president Dawn Ostroff said. Real-life
supermodel Tyra Banks will executive-produce and judge the competition.
"There is a misconception about supermodels that is more fantasy than
reality," Banks said. "With Supermodel, I want to demystify the glamour
and show the challenges and hard work of becoming a supermodel, but in a
humorously hip and edgy way."
The show is a production of Right Brain Entertainment in association with Ty
Ty Baby Productions.
