Tyra Banks producing autobiographical sitcom



Supermodel. Television actress. Talk show host. Reality show maven.

Tyra Banks will add yet another line to her lengthy resume with the creation of Fivehead, a new sitcom based on her teen years and the teasing she endured as a lanky, awkward youth. tyrabanks.jpg

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.

What are your thoughts on the new sitcom? Do you plan to watch?
