Washington (ANI): Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher are joining forces to create an unscripted series for ABC, say reports. The as-yet-untitled project will feature contestants competing in a beauty pageant. ABC has requested that the concept remain under wraps because the show hasn't started production. The network has ordered eight episodes from the duo's respective production companies, reports Us magazine.
Kutcher is behind MTV's "Punk'd" and the CW's "Beauty and the Geek". While Banks is the executive producer of the CW's top-rated "America's Next Top Model" as well as an upcoming CW project in which contestants compete to become assistant editors at a fashion magazine.
