Nancy Glass‘s Philadelphia- and Los Angeles-based indie Glass Entertainment Group has secured a coproduction partnership with plus-size model, activist and author Tess Holliday.

Under terms of the deal, Glass Entertainment will work in tandem with Holliday (pictured) to develop and produce non-scripted programming revolving around body positivity, inclusivity and diversity.

She will work closely alongside Glass Entertainment Group CEO Nancy Glass, SVP Eric Neuhaus and Ben Fetterman, VP of business development.

Holliday and the production outfit are currently in development on Fat Ink, which is described as an “emotional format that documents the journeys that plus-size women go through to get tattooed.”

A leader of the body positivity movement, Holliday was the first plus-size model to be signed to a mainstream modeling agency and is committed to spreading the message that “beauty goes further than size, race, gender, abilities or social class.”

“Tess empowers people of all shapes and sizes to confidently embrace their body,” said Glass in a statement. “We are proud to bring her message of living a true authentic self to a slate of programming that will inspire our viewers.”
