AMERICA�S NEXT TOP MODEL, featuring Tyra Banks, gives real people an opportunity to prove that they can make it in the high-stress, high stakes world of supermodeling. The series follows a group of young women with various backgrounds, shapes and sizes, who live together in a New York apartment and vie for a modeling contract.

The dramality series exposes the transformation of everyday young women into potentially fierce supermodels, as they face weekly tests that determine who can make the cut. Participants are asked to demonstrate both inner and outer beauty as they learn to master complicated cat walks, intense physical fitness, fashion photo shoots and perfect publicity skills, all under 24-hour-a-day surveillance of the AMERICA�S NEXT TOP MODEL cameras that chronicle every move.

Banks leads the panel of AMERICA�S NEXT TOP MODEL judges, including the world�s first supermodel Janice Dickinson, photographer Nigel Barker and stylist Nol� Marin, who will conduct regular evaluations to narrow the field from week-to-week. In addition, special guest judges appear to critique within his or her area of expertise.

The executive producers are Ken Mok ("Making the Band") and Tyra Banks. The dramality was created by Tyra Banks and developed by Mok and Kenya Barris. AMERICA�S NEXT TOP MODEL is produced by 10 by 10 Entertainment in association with Bankable Productions.
