Top Model 11 now casting

One day after the debut of America’s Top Model 10, producers began casting for the show’s 11th season. The announcement calls the show a “dramality series,” continuing the use of a term that only Tyra’s reality show uses.

As usual, the show wants “females, ages 18 to 27, of diverse backgrounds, shapes, sizes and with a minimum height requirement of 5’7″ tall,” according to a press release.

Open casting calls are Saturday in Boston, Tuesday in San Francisco, March 1 in Dallas, March 5 in Atlanta, March 8 in Chicago, and March 15 in New York, March 22 in Miami, and March 29 in Los Angeles.
