Tyra Banks To Make Autobiographical Comedy Series "Fivehead"

Posted Saturday October 13, 2012 2:02 PM GMT

After being the butt of many jokes throughout her teen years, Tyra Banks will get the last laugh when she takes her former awkwardness and turns it into a new comedy series.

According to report by Deadline on Saturday (October 13), the iconic supermodel will create an autobiographical laugh riot for ABC, titled, "Fivehead."

Explaining the meaning behind the interesting title, Tyra said, "In high school, if you have glasses, you’re a ‘four eyes.’ If you have braces, you’re a ‘metal mouth.’ But if you had my forehead? You’re a FIVEHEAD,”

Banks will team up on the potential series with friend, TV writer-producer, and "America's Next Top Model" co-creator, Kenya Barris. “To be able to witness her career was wild, but to be able to watch Tyra grow up was nothing short of nutty,” Barris said in a statement, adding, “I am blown away by the opportunity to tell not just a great story but a story that I remember so fondly.”
