BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Nigel Barker may have been cut from his gig as a judge on “America’s Next Top Model” earlier this year, but he’s quickly rebounded, joining Naomi Campbell for Oxygen’s “The Face.”
The “renowned fashion photographer” will host the 2013-due Oxygen series, which features supermodels Naomi, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha coaching aspiring female models hoping to become the “face” of a well-known brand.
Naomi and her fellow catwalkers will help in the “molding, nurturing and transforming” of the contestants on the show, according to Oxygen.
The coaches will be involved in the scouting process, before putting together their own teams.
Tests each week on the show will involve photo shoots, runway shows and commercials for various famed American brands.
Andrew Frank, a former showrunner for “The Amazing Race” and “Survivor,” is executive producing the series.
Casting for the series is currently underway and aspiring models can get more information at Oxygen.com.
This is Naomi’s first television show, Oxygen said.
