Tyra Banks

Supermodel-turned-TV titan Tyra Banks is turning her attentions to scripted drama after selling a show based on her early life to a major U.S. network. 

The beauty moved from the runway to the small screen when she created America's Next Top Model in 2003, which has proved a huge success and has run for 19 seasons. 

Banks has also hosted her own talk show, but now she is moving into fiction after penning a script inspired by her teenage years and her rise from schoolgirl to the fashion elite. 

The show, called Fivehead, has been picked up by bosses at ABCl.
