Tyra Banks Producing Autobiographical Comedy 'Five Head'

Tyra Banks and her longtime friend Kenya Barris (a producer on Fox’s short-lived I Hate My Teenage Daughter) are joining together to produce Fivehead, a comedy that will focus on Banks’ awkward teenage years before she became a superstar model and TV host.

Deadline Hollywood describes the show as:

… Chronicles the impressionable teenage years of Banks in the halls of her high school and at home, focusing on her family and the long journey that took Banks from awkward teen to one of the world’s most recognizable supermodels. “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,” said Banks.

Barris goes on to say,

“To be able to witness her career was wild, but to be able to watch Tyra grow up was nothing short of nutty… I am blown away by the opportunity to tell not just a great story but a story that I remember so fondly.”
