Tyra Banks and childhood pal Kenya Barris (producer of Fox's I HATE MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER) are partnering up to create/produce FIVEHEAD, a comedy based on Banks' awkward teen years. The pair will create the characters and stories and Barris is set to pen the script.
Prior to becoming a model, TV host, Harvard Grad, etc. - Banks was often called a "Fivehead" by her classmates due to the size of her forehead.
No further details have been released - but BroadwayWorld will keep you updated on Banks' first dive into scripted comedy as it transitions from pre-production to pilot!
