There is just no stopping Tyra Banks. From producing America’s Next Top Model to producing Fivehead, a comedy based on her life. Fivehead is one of the names that she was called by bullies as she was growing up due to her large forehead.
“In high school, if you have glasses, you’re a ‘four eyes.’ If you have braces, you’re a ‘metal mouth.’ But if you had my forehead? You’re a FIVEHEAD,” Banks said, explaining the show’s title.
The creation of the show will be a collaboration between Tyra and her childhood friend Kenya Barris. Viewers can expect an inside view into Tyra’s childhood, her insecure teenage years to how she became a world renowned supermodel.
“To be able to witness her career was wild, but to be able to watch Tyra grow up was nothing short of nutty,” Barris said in a statement, adding, “I am blown away by the opportunity to tell not just a great story but a story that I remember so fondly.”
I cant wait to have Fivehead on South African screens. I’m counting on VUZU to bring it to us as soon as it airs in the US. Asking for too much?
