The 36-year-old beauty will call it quits on the Daytime Emmy award-winning talk show in spring 2010, after its fifth and final season. Banks will then concentrate on the launch of Bankable Studios, a New York-based film production company that will “allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are."
A source said Bank"s latest move is inspired by Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey taking on the big screen. The insider added that this could mean she will bring “positive images of women to the big screen."
However, Banks TV reality show “America"s Next Top Model" will make a comeback for its 15th season on the CW in February 2010, while the second season of the ABC reality show “True Beauty" has already been filmed.
