Spin-offs — they're like a show within a show, involving familiar characters for which we've grown to adore. Since it worked like a charm for popular shows such as Melrose Place, a spin-off of Beverly Hills 90210, and Laverne & Shirley, an offshoot of Happy Days, will it now fly for America's Next Top Model?
We're about to find out. According to Reuters, CW has plans to spin off its most successful show in a new makeover series tentatively called Operation Fabulous. Featuring ANTM staples Jay Manuel and Miss J. Alexander, the duo will hit the road, seeking out those in need of makeovers.
Born out of the enormous success of the highly anticipated ANTM model makeover segment each season, "Jay and J" will choose five participants from selected towns, giving them fierce transformations, no doubt.
So, will you watch yet another makeover-style show or will this version become a spin-off dud, à la Joanie Loves Chachi, the not-so-successful other spin-off of Happy Days?
