TV Land Announces Details on New Original; ABC Friday Change and More; Barry Williams Blog

TV Land has begun production on the new reality series She's Got The Look, the search for the next new face of the fashion industry. In partnership with Wilhelmina Models, Inc., the series previously titled The Next Great Supermodel -- sets out to discover the next star: a woman 35 or older who exudes sophistication, beauty and confidence and wants to be a model. One winner will receive a lucrative modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models, Inc. and a feature in SELF Magazine. Iconic supermodel Kim Alexis, who has graced the cover of more than 500 magazines, will host She's Got The Look. Supermodel Beverly Johnson -- who made history as the first African-American model to grace the cover of American Vogue -- celebrity stylist Robert Verdi and Wilhelmina President Sean Patterson will be featured as judges on the series. The series is executive produced by Emmy Award-Winner Allison Grodner (Big Brother, Blowout) and is scheduled to debut in early summer 2008.
Currently filming in New York City, She's Got The Look follows 20 women -- all over the age of 35 -- vying for a modeling contract. Selected by TV Land and Wilhelmina's Model Search team after months of auditions and regional competitions around the country, the contenders have been flown to New York to live in a house together to see who has what it takes to be the next great supermodel. Through a series of competitions such as photo shoots and tests on their fashion know-how, women will be eliminated weekly until the ultimate winner is crowned.

Effective Friday, November 2, 2007 Men in Trees will move from 10:00 PM ET/PT Fridays to 8:00 PM ET/PT Fridays, while 20/20 will move from 8:00 PM ET/PT Fridays to 10:02 PM ET/PT Fridays. So this is a switcharoo. This Friday (Oct. 26) 20/20 will be pre-empted at 8:00 PM for an encore of Grey's Anatomy.
ABC is bringing back October Road and Notes from the Underbelly back this November for second seasons. October Road will launch its new season on a special night (Thursday, November 22) at 10 PM ET/PT, following Grey's Anatomy. Then it will move to Mondays at 10:00 PM ET/PT starting the following Monday (Nov. 26). Also launching its new season that Monday will be the sitcom Notes from the Underbelly, which will air Mondays at 9:30 PM ET/PT, which means Samantha Who? will move to 9:00 PM ET/PT. That night will be the first part of the huge Dancing with the Stars season finale, which will air 8-9 PM ET/PT that night. So the lead-in will be great for these two returning series.
Also starting January 7, the Mondays at 8:00 PM ET/PT slot will be the Dancing with the Stars spinoff Dance War, which will have judges Bruno and Carie Ann from the mega hit with a dancing team and will compete against each other.

Barry Williams (Greg from The Brady Bunch) is getting ready to launch his own blog and is looking for writers/fans to contribute to it on a regular basis. He is looking for six co-authors to write with him on his soon to be launched blog - The Greg Brady Project. They are looking for fans from all over to share views on Brady related and non-Brady related topics. Each co-author will be asked to contribute on a range of perspectives twice a week. No experience is necessary and this is a non-paid position. Bloggers will enjoy special benefits. Think you would be great for this? Email them and tell them why in 500 words or less. They will need your submission on or before November 1. So hurry! They will interview the top 20 entrants and make their selections by November 15, 2007. Be a part of the excitement! Submit your entry today! Contact Derrick Daye at: ddaye@barrywilliams.com
