As America’s Next Top Model continues its descent into obscurity, Oxygen will take a gamble on the genre with The Face.
Following the much-loved formula of The Voice, the reality series will feature Naomi Campbell as one of the three supermodel judges tasked with cultivating and nurturing a team of talent. (Contestants are ultimately vying for a contract as the face of a national brand.)
“The Face is a fresh new series that delivers all the elements our audience craves: fashion, beauty and drama,” SVP Original Programming and Development at Oxygen Media, Rod Aissa, told Hollywood Reporter. “Oxygen has been looking for the next ideation in the modeling genre and this project delivers it.”
With Naomi on board, it’s safe to say drama will prevail. Stay tuned for a premiere date.
