UPN has picked up eight one-hour episodes of a midseason reality series “Supermodel” featuring Tyra Banks, who also serves as executive producer and a judge. The show will feature a nationwide talent
search for eight real people who think they can make it in the high-stress, high-stakes world of supermodeling. The series will follow the participants as they live together and vie for the
championship title in weekly tests that demonstrate “who can cut it as America's ultimate model with both inner and outer beauty.” The producers promise “real people from diverse backgrounds, shapes
and sizes. ” The top prize will be a modeling contract with a top agency. A panel of SUPERMODEL experts, comprised of agency representatives, photographers, fashion magazine editors and Banks, will
oversee the competitions.
