Tyra Banks producing autobiographical sitcom
Supermodel. Television actress. Talk show host. Reality show maven.
Way to get the last laugh.
Banks – whose past insecurities with things like her height and weight and large forehead are well-documented – has long used her celebrity as a platform to shed light on bullying and to encourage others to love their naturally-beautiful-selves.
The name of the proposed ABC comedy, she explained, was inspired by a mean-spirited moniker she and dozens of fans like her have come to embrace.
“In high school, if you have glasses you’re a ‘four eyes,’ if you have braces you’re a ‘metal mouth’,” Banks has said. “But if you had my forehead? You’re a ‘fivehead’.”
Banks is reportedly slated to narrate the show and make regular guest appearances.
