TV Land's competition reality series She's Got The Look has a whole new look when it returns for its third season on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 at 10PM ET/PT as the series introduces a new host - Brooke Burke (Dancing with The Stars, Wild On); a new city - Los Angeles; a new judge - supermodel Roshumba Williams and ten new finalists all over the age of 35 competing for a second chance at their dreams. The TV Land PRIME original series is a collaboration with Wilhelmina Models, Inc. and sets out to discover a beautiful, sophisticated and confident woman over the age of 35 who has the potential to transform herself into a model, representing some of the most high-profile brands and highly-coveted campaigns in the fashion and beauty industries. The winner of the series receives a contract with Wilhelmina Models, Inc. and a photo spread in SELF Magazine. Also joining Roshumba Williams are returning judges, celebrity stylist Robert Verdi and Wilhelmina president Sean Patterson. Emmy(R) Award-Winner Allison Grodner (Big Brother) returns as executive producer and has joined forces with executive producer Rich Meehan (Big Brother) under their new banner, Fly On The Wall Entertainment. Rachel Tung is also executive producer. RoC(R) Skincare is the presenting sponsor of She's Got The Look.
