Tyra Banks is expanding her lucrative empire. The beauty rose to prominence as a super model, most notably for Victoria’s Secret. From there Banks dabbled in acting appearing in then-boyfriend John Singleton’s film Higher Learning. Tyra then moved to the small screen when she created America’s Next Top Model in 2003, which has proved a huge success running for 19 seasons and spawning a slew of copycat shows.
Banks has also hosted her own talk show and even released a book, but now she is moving into fiction after penning a script inspired by her teenage years and her rise from schoolgirl to the fashion elite.
The show, called Fivehead, has been picked up by bosses at ABC.
