Tyra Banks to Produce Reality Show about Fashion Magazines

Tyra Banks Turns Her Attention from Modeling to Magazines

Apparently it's Famous People Getting New Reality Shows Day. Not only is Sarah Jessica Parker pitching a Project Runway-style show for artists, but Tyra Banks has also figured out another way to show up on your TV screen. Banks and her America's Next Top Model producing partner Ken Mok are diving into the world of fashion magazines with a show about fashionistas angling for assistant editor jobs.

The idea apparently started with three of the people behind Project Runway, who pitched it to the CW; the network then recruited Banks and Mok to help put the show together. It's expected to go into production this Spring and premiere in late Spring or early Summer. According to the Hollywood Reporter, each episode will have both an individual challenge and a team challenge to create a page for "The Book," a fake edition of a fashion magazine. The winning team's page will make it into the mock-up, while the losing page will end up in the trash (let's hope they recycle) and get one of the team's members eliminated.

The producers are reportedly in negotiations with a fashion magazine to host the challenges and judge the contestants. I hope they get a good one to participate, because for all her modeling skills, I can't say I trust Tyra's editorial judgment. What about you?

i read about this yesterday and i don't know how i feel about it. i wonder what caliber of contestants will be on the show and what it will look like. besides - how many Tyra shows do we really need? does this mean that the next season of ANTM is the last?
