America’s Next Top Model follows a group of young women of various backgrounds, shapes and sizes who live together and vie for a grand prize, which will include a modeling contract. The drama exposes the transformation of everyday young women into potentially fierce top models, as they face weekly tests that determine who can make the cut. The finalists compete in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp, a crash course to modeling fame that includes mentoring by supermodel Tyra Banks and exposure to high-profile fashion industry gurus, all under 24-hour-a-day surveillance of the America’s Next Top Model cameras, which chronicle every move.
America’s Top Model is produced by 10 by 10 Entertainment in association with Bankable Productions. Tyra Banks is the creator and executive producer along with Ken Mok (Making the Band) and Daniel Soiseth (American Inventor).
