Tyra Banks - Tyra Banks creates TV show based on her life

Tyra Banks' life is set to be turned into a TV show.

The 'America's Next Top Model' host has sold a script based on her years as a teen model to America's ABC and she is set to co-create and executive produce the show with her friend Kenya Barris Banks, who is a TV writer.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, Tyra has called the comedy 'Fivehead', a tongue-in-cheek reference to her large forehead.

Tyra recently revealed she was bullied at school because she was so thin.

The model says she grew three inches and lost 30lbs in the space of three months when she was 11, which left her a target for bullies.

The 38-year-old beauty said: ''When I was 11 years old, I grew three inches and lost 30 pounds in three months. So I went from being a mean bully, cute little chubby little girl to shooting up, [weighing] 98 pounds and just looking sick and frail.

''I wasn't sick, but people thought there was something wrong with me. I was the brunt of every joke, every bad thing. I hated my reflection in the mirror. I would try to stuff food down my throat to gain weight.''
