Get ready to see a side of one of America′s first supermodels that no one′s seen before in The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, a reality series that follows Janice Dickinson (AMERICA′S NEXT TOP MODEL) as she makes the transformation from model to mogul by starting her own Hollywood modeling agency. The series debuts tonight (June 6th) at 10:00 pm EST.

The 11-episode series from Krasnow Productions and FremantleMedia North America offers viewers an intimate view into Dickinson′s life as she tackles the grueling work of starting her own business and teaching a new generation of aspiring models the business from the ground up. Viewers watch as Dickinson juggles motherhood, champions her new models, and tries to run a profitable agency -- all while dealing with skepticism from the industry she helped to define. It′s a real business with real financial, personal and professional stakes for Janice. And she is one woman who is completely unafraid of letting her real personality show when the cameras are rolling. A personality that is fearless, wickedly funny, honest and real.

The show goes beyond Dickinson′s runway persona to show a woman on the verge of a new phase in her career and determined to redefine American beauty. Seeking an untraditional and unique look, Dickinson auditions over 500 aspiring models. Drawing on her years of experience in the industry, Dickinson mentors candidates on look, style and composure, even taking their photos personally. Finally, she narrows the search to five models who become the first to be signed by her agency.

The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency is managed by Aaron Meyerson, Oxygen's Senior Vice President of Development and Production and Alice Dickens, Oxygen′s Manager of Development West Coast
