Supermodel Petra Nemcova mentors 6 models in Discovery Travel & Living’s new series

Reality shows have groomed singers, actors, dancers, and actors. Discovery Travel & Living now trains the spotlight on models in its new series ‘A model life with Petra Nemcova’ from January 4, 2008. The series will feature six new models being groomed by supermodel Petra Nemcova for the New York Fashion Week and getting a contract with Next Modeling with Tammy Francis and Stephen Lee as the agents for the ‘New Face’. The series will be aired on Fridays at 8 pm.

The models have been handpicked by Nemcova and Joel Wilkenfeld, Co-President, Next Modeling, and all have prior experience in modeling. The selected models include Abigail from the UK, Angelika from Malibu, California, Beatrice from Brazil, Lucia from Slovakia, Michelle from Center Hill, Florida, and Valeria from Australia.

‘A model life with Petra Nemcova’ will highlight the six models being groomed for the New York modeling scene and their first test shoot to the runways of New York Fashion Week without any elimination rounds.

Throughout the process, Next Modeling will evaluate the potential of the six fresh faces, finally deciding how many of the models deserve a contract with the agency at the end of the series.

Speaking on her association with the series, Nemcova, said, “I was thrilled to share my experiences with these six young women. The New York modeling scene is extremely competitive and it is important that they learn about life off the runway. It takes both inner and outer beauty to make it on the world’s largest stage. ‘A model life with Petra Nemcova’ documents every step of the process and showcases the real behind-the-scenes work that goes into a modeling career.”

Dave Broome, Executive Producer, 25/7 Production Inc, said, “This is a series about hopes, dreams and aspirations and overcoming the real life obstacles of the modeling industry. I’m excited to show the audience the true competitiveness and often gritty side of becoming successful in this industry.”

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector.
