Not content with just putting "booty tooch" in the national lexicon, Tyra Banks is continuing her domination of pop culture with another TV show. The America’s Next Top Model mogul has sold Fivehead, a scripted TV show about a teenaged model’s life, to ABC.
Fivehead is a nickname of the top model, whose forehead is so large that she has jokingly called it a "fivehead." The show, which Page Six reports is being written by Banks’ friend Kendra Barris, will be about a teenager in Los Angeles who’s working her way through high school while also working as a model. Obviously, it’s going to be autobiographical.
With the selling of Fivehand, Tyra Banks joins the elite club of women in the entertainment biz with multiple shows on TV: Chelsea Handler has Chelsea Lately and the since-cancelled Are You There God? It’s Me, Chelsea, and Whitney Cummings has both Whitney, Two Broke Girls, and a forthcoming talk show. Between all these shows and the success of Girls and The Mindy Project, it’s a thrill to see the injection of estrogen on the telly.
