Curvy Supermodel heads to the Lithuania
Lithuanian free-to-air network LNK has commissioned a localized version of primetime reality competition Curvy Supermodel (pictured) from Israeli producer-distributor Armoza Formats.
Originally produced by Tresor TV, Curvy Supermodel searches for the face of the future selected out of thousands looking to find a place in the competitive and discriminative modeling industry. An expert jury will mentor them and choose who has what it takes to continue on, with only one contestant winning the title and modeling contract.
A third season of Curvy Supermodel airs today (July 26) on German commercial channel RTL II, while a second season is set premiere on Ukraine’s 1+1 in September.
The Lithuanian revision of Curvy Supermodel, meanwhile, will consist of eight episodes and is set to air this fall on LNK.
