‘America’s Next Top Model’ Could Find New Home


I haven’t watched America’s Next Top Model since the Eva Marcille and Yaya Dacosta days, so I was surprised at first that it was still on the air after all these years and then surprised again that the CW had decided to cancel it after 22 cycles.

But fear not!  The show is being shopped around to other networks and streaming services, so there’s a chance it could live on.

America’s Next Top Model’s current 22nd cycle may not be its final runway bow. While the reality veteran is ending its run on the CW with a series finale on Dec. 4, I hear there is a possibility for a 23rd cycle elsewhere. I’ve learned that a new Top Model installment is currently being pitched to cable and streaming outlets. It is being shepherded by Top Model executive producer/showrunner Ken Mok. I hear the potential reboot is being done with co-creator/star Tyra Banks’ support. She is expected to continue as an executive producer, should Top Model find a new home. Her potential on-screen involvement is unclear at this time. (“I truly believe it’s time,” she wrote in reaction to the announcement of the show’s end on the CW last month.) [Deadline]

Tyra Banks to Appear on ‘black-ish’ S2

This should be interesting.  So far, all of their guest stars have been a great fit, so given the show’s track record, I’m looking forward to her appearance.

black-ish just got a little more fierce.

America’s Next Top Model boss Tyra Banks will guest-star on the ABC comedy’s upcoming Season 2, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Banks will play a version of herself as Dre’s best friend, series creator Kenya Barris says, in a story based on his own longstanding, real-life friendship with the fashionista.” [Via TVLine]
