Tyra Banks Producing Autobiographical Comedy
Finally, the origins of “smizing” will be revealed!
Tyra Banks and longtime friend Kenya Barris (a producer on Fox’s short-lived I Hate My Teenage Daughter) are teaming up to co-create Fivehead, a comedy that will focus on Banks’ gawky teenage years before she became a noted supermodel and TV host, Deadline is reporting. The duo will co-create the characters and stories for the single-camera comedy, while Barris will write the script.
The America’s Next Top Model host and Barris have known each other since grade school. The title “Fivehead” is a derogatory term that was hurled at Banks as a youngster because of the size of her forehead.
