The second installment of UPN’s hit “dramality” series AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL, featuring Tyra Banks, gives real people an opportunity to prove that they can make it in the high-stress, high-stakes world of supermodeling.

The series will follow 12 young women of various backgrounds, shapes and sizes, who will live together in a New York loft and vie for a modeling contract. The dramality will expose the transformation of everyday young women into potentially fierce supermodels, as they face weekly tests that will determine who can make the cut.

With mentoring by supermodel Tyra Banks and exposure to high-profile fashion industry gurus, the finalists will compete in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp, a crash course to supermodel fame.

Participants will be asked to demonstrate both inner and outer beauty as they learn to master complicated cat walks, intense physical fitness, fashion photo shoots and perfect publicity skills, all under 24-hour-a-day surveillance of the AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL cameras that will chronicle every move.

Banks will lead the panel of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL judges, comprised of leading fashion industry experts, including former supermodel Janice Dickinson, who will conduct regular evaluations to narrow the field from week-to-week.

The executive producers are Ken Mok ("Making the Band") and Tyra Banks. AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL is produced by 10 by 10 Entertainment in association with Ty Ty Baby Productions. The dramality was created by Tyra Banks and developed by Mok.

America’s Next Top Model will air 9:00-10:00 PM (ET/PT) premiering on May 20, 2003
