LOS ANGELES – E! has greenlit a new one-hour, eight-episode docu-series “Model Squad,” which follows some of today’s most high-profile and in-demand supermodels within the high-stakes fashion industry, including Daniela Braga, Olivia Culpo, Hannah Ferguson, Ping Hue, Nadine Leopold, Caroline Lowe, Ashley Moore, Shanina Shaik and Devon Windsor. Having graced the pages of Vogue and Sports Illustrated, landed campaigns for Balmain and Givenchy, and walked the coveted Victoria’s Secret fashion show, these ladies have taken the fashion world by storm.
However, these women did not get to where they are today without hard work, dedication and perseverance. Produced by Trooper Entertainment in association with Lionsgate TV and IMG, the new series offers an authentic look as they learn to live, love and conquer the Big Apple, and captures the emotional highs and lows of navigating their complicated world. Additionally, the network will air a preview special, “Model Squad: Fashion Week,” on Monday, February 12th at 10 PM ET/PT with the series to launch later this year.
"The women of 'Model Squad' have achieved incredible success at a very young age," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Executive Vice President of Development and Production, E!. "This series gives our viewers an exclusive front row seat as they watch real top models compete against and support each other through the triumphs and the challenges of the mega-pressure world of high fashion."
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with E!,” said Jennifer O’Connell, Lionsgate EVP of Alternative Programming. “Captained by executive producer Dave Caplan, ‘Model Squad’ represents how Lionsgate alternative programming seeks out and works with the best in the business, and in this case, women who are at the top of the modeling game.”
"I am excited to document the drive and ambition of these young women at the top of their industry," said Executive Producer Dave Caplan. "With supermodels at the forefront of pop culture, the series could not have a better home than on E!”
