UPN plans Tyra Banks-judged Supermodel search.
UPN will search for people who want to become a supermodel for a show aptly titled Supermodel. The eight-episode series will air next year and be produced and judged by Tyra Banks. “I want to demystify the glamor and show the challenges and hard work of becoming a supermodel, but in a humorously hip and edgy way,” she said, according to People. Contestants “will live together and compete for the championship title in weekly tests,” the magazine reports.
