Tyra Banks: Top model, actress, TV producer, talk show host, author, singer, professional smizer—now sitcom creator? Phew, what can't this wonder woman do?

According to a report in Deadline, Banks is co-creating and producing a comedy series based on her awkward teenage years, aptly titled "Fivehead" in honor of her big forehead.

“In high school, if you have glasses, you’re a ‘four eyes’, if you have braces, you’re a ‘metal mouth’ but if you had my forehead? You’re a Fivehead,” the ANTM star told Deadline.

The sitcom, which is airing on ABC, will chronicle an ugly duckling Banks (hard to imagine, no?) as she fights her way through those vicious days in high school. Her family and her journey from geek to chic will also play an integral role in the plot.

We just wonder, will her eventual schooling at HarvardHarvard, Harvard, Harvard—ever get any play in the series? Wouldn't be suprised.

What do you think of Banks' first foray into scripted series? Are you of a fan of her current reality show, ANTM? And, the biggest question, will you watch her new sitcom? Let us know in the comments below!
