VH1 Brings Back “America’s Next Top Model” But Without Tyra Banks
VH1 is bringing back “America’s Next Top Model” but this time without longtime host Tyra Banks. The TV series ended last October after 20 successful seasons on UPN and The CW!
As we all know, Tyra Banks is the queen of modeling TV. She started the series back in May 2003 and has been the executive producer since. Although VH1 will now host the show, Banks will still remain in control as executive producer along with Ken Mok. Smart move!
“We’re thrilled to bring ‘America’s Next Top Model’ back to VH1 and partner with CBS Television Distribution and Tyra Banks to reinvent this franchise for a whole new generation,” Chris McCarthy, General Manager of VH1, said in a statement. “This is a homecoming for the series, as VH1 helped catapult the show to cultural icon status as the first cable network to air the show after it launched.”
In this new season, you can expect 14 episodes with a later announced premiere date. The series will be produced by 10 by 10 Entertainment in association with the Tyra Banks Company.
