'America's Next Top Model's eleventh season to debut September 3
By Christopher Rocchio, 07/21/2008
The CW has announced America's Next Top Model's eleventh season will premiere with a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, September 3 at 8PM ET/PT.
The CW will also air weekly Top Model eleventh-season encore broadcasts in the Fridays at 9PM ET/PT time slot this fall.
Beginning October 29, Top Model eleventh-season episodes will serve as the lead in for Stylista -- a new reality competition series for aspiring fashion magazine editors that will air in the Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT time slot.
A collaboration between Project Runway developer Eli Holzman and executive producers Jane Cha and Desiree Gruber and Top Model creator Tyra Banks and executive producer Ken Mok, Stylista will begin with 11 fashion enthusiasts who will be competing for a paid, year-long Elle editorial position; a paid lease on a Manhattan apartment for a year; and a $100,000 clothing allowance at H&M.
The CW also announced 13 - Fear is Real, a new reality competition series/horror movie hybrid that the network ordered in March and initially scheduled to debut this summer, will now air as part of the network's midseason programming.
Noticably absent from The CW's Fall 2008 primetime programming lineup is a new installment of Beauty and the Geek, which the network decided to place on hiatus after the show's fifth season concluded its broadcast run this past spring.
