    Tyra Spins Off Top Model

    Tyra Banks is looking to do for the entire country what she's done for the model wannabes on her reality show—minus the cramped quarters, petty arguments and questionable eating habits.

    The CW has given the greenlight to Operation Fabulous, the first spinoff series for the fiercest show in prime time, set to be produced by Banks herself.

    According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new pilot will essentially expand on one of the most popular elements of Top Model—the model makeover episode—and apply its transformative powers to women across the country.

    Top Model mentors Jay and J—as in Manuel and Alexander, for the uninitiated—will partner up to host the show and make pit stops in various towns across the country.

    At each stop, they'll have the dubious task of choosing the location's five least-fashionable femmes (sorry, fellas) and give them head-to-toe makeovers by teaching them how to dress, style their hair and apply their makeup with all the confidence of, well, Tyra, hopefully.

    While it's the first official spinoff for the series, it's the second ANTM-related project Banks has announced plans for this week.

    On Wednesday, the daytime chat host announced plans to launch Modelville, a reality show that will air within The Tyra Show, and that will follow the also-ran catwalkers from seasons past.
