Bankable Productions
Bankable Productions is the Production arm under the Tyra Banks Company. In 2018, we inked a first-look deal for both scripted and unscripted programming with Universal Television and Universal Television Alternative Studio. 
here are some of our faves that we’ve done:

LIFE-SIZE 2

Be A Star!

Where you live, where you are, you probably are, or know someone that was a big fan of the original Lifesize movie starring Tyra and an 11-year-old Lindsay Lohan. One request Tyra heard most was, “Please make a Lifesize sequel!” Well, Tyra delivered to the fans what they wanted and 18 years after the original, produced and starred, alongside Grown~ish star Francia Raisa, in Lifesize 2: A Christmas Eve. The holiday themed sequel was a mega hit, surpassing Freeform network's ratings projections by 50%, prompting fans to demand yet another film.

AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL

Wanna Be On Top?

Tyra created and executive produces the longest-running, competition-based reality television series, America’s Next Top Model. ANTM premiered in May 2003 and currently airs in 140 countries and had 40 international versions worldwide, spanning from Germany to Latin America, China to Africa, from Scandinavia to Russia, Australia and beyond. In India there are two Top Model versions (one in Hindi and one in English) with two different casts and hosts. In fact, Top Model is so popular in Asia that, not only are there formatted local versions in Vietnam, China, South Korea, Indonesia, etc, there is also a continent-wide version of the show: Asia’s Next Top Model! Stateside, viewers have experienced 24 Cycles of America’s Next Top Model. Many believe Tyra Banks created a show about models to demonstrate how difficult, yet exciting the vocation of modeling is. But the use of models was merely a vessel, a smokescreen that obscured the true objective: to challenge societal norms and the narrow confines of what constitutes “beautiful”. Inspired by the pain, rejection, and intense pressures Tyra experienced as a young black, and later curvy, model to fit into a narrow mold of beauty, she created America’s Next Top Model. Tyra also casted many atypical looking girls to speak to females worldwide and show them that cookie-cutter beauty is pretty boring. Unique beauty, with all of its imperfections, is the most exciting beauty of all.

THE TYRA SHOW

Kiss My Fat Ass!

The Tyra Banks Show focused on empowering young women and encouraging them to reach their goals and achieve their dreams. The show did not shy away from discussing the taboo, especially with women’s health, or things that make you blush. In 2008, Tyra had hour long interviews with all the presidential candidates. Think Hilary Clinton, Mike Huckabee, and Barack Obama. The world stood still when Tyra confronted body shaming tabloids head-on by delivering a monologue that became one of the most famous moments in talk show history. As Tyra’s voice cracked and tears welled up in her eyes, she exclaimed, ``If I had lower self-esteem I would probably be starving myself right now, she said. ``I have something to say to all of you that have something nasty to say about me or women that look like me. Kiss my fat ass!`` The speech was raw, real and a world-wide revelation.
