UPN to air Tyra Banks-hosted 'Supermodel' reality contest series

By Reality TV World staff, 10/30/2002 

Variety reports that UPN has given an eight-episode midseason order to an hourlong reality series tentatively titled "Supermodel," with Tyra Banks serving as an executive producer and judge.

"'Supermodel' offers a twist on the reality genre and is a perfect fit for UPN and our audience," said Dawn Ostroff, UPN's president of entertainment. "The series combines the excitement of competition and the real-life drama of people pursing their dreams." Added Banks: "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 series will feature a nationwide talent search for eight contenders who believe they can make it in the modeling world. Participants will live together as they vie in weekly tests for a modeling contract. A panel of experts, comprised of agency representatives, photographers, fashion magazine editors and Banks, will oversee the competitions.
