Tyra Banks has signed a first-look deal with Universal Television and Universal Television Alternative Studio and she will develop both scripted and unscripted content for the network.

Although, Tyra is the host of NBC’s competition series “America’s Got Talent,” this deal will have no effect on her role. Universal TV president Pearlena Igbokwe says, “Tyra is one of the most driven producers in television. SHe has long brought incredible passion to her unscripted projects and I can’t wait to start collaborating with her on the scripted side.”

Tyra is known for executive producing and hosting her daytime talk show “The Tyra Banks Show,” which she earned two Daytime Emmy Awards. Tyra Banks has been working on her brand since the 90s and she is still continuing to thrive.
