Tyra Banks sells scripted show based on her rise to fame


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 ABC.
