Fashion icon and media mogul Tyra Banks is about to launch another new project — a TV series based on her youth, tentatively called Fivehead.

The title is derived from schoolyard taunts a young Banks received because of her pronounced forehead.

According to Deadline, the show will explore the “long journey from awkward teen to one of the world’s most recognizable supermodels.”

The Everybody Hates Chris-type show has been picked up by ABC and will be co-produced by Banks’ America’s Next Top Model partner Kenya Barris.

At this stage, it’s unknown whether Banks will play a role in front of the camera on the series.
