The hit dramality series "America's Next Top Model" features Tyra Banks and 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 of various backgrounds, shapes and sizes, who live together and vie for a modeling contract.
The dramality exposes the transformation of everyday young women into potentially fierce supermodels, as they face weekly tests that determine who can make the cut. With mentoring by supermodel Tyra Banks and exposure to high-profile fashion-industry gurus, the finalists compete in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp, a crash course to supermodel fame.
Participants are asked to demonstrate both inner and outer beauty as they learn to master complicated catwalks, 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 judges for cycle 7 of "America's Next Top Model" which includes living fashion icon Twiggy, runway expert J. Alexander and photographer Nigel Barker, who will conduct regular evaluations to narrow the field from week to week. In addition, special guest judges will appear to critique within his or her area of expertise.
The executive producers are Ken Mok ("Making the Band"), Tyra Banks and Anthony Dominici ("Amazing Race"). The dramality series 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.
