Dec. 1 (UPI) -- Lifetime says its eight-episode, competition series Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid is to debut Jan. 11.
The show "follows six young aspiring models and their mothers as they travel to New York City, shack up under one roof and pursue their dreams of becoming a supermodel," a press release said. "Each week, Yolanda puts the girls and their moms through a series of lessons and assignments designed to not only test their modeling agility, but also the strength of their mother-daughter relationship."
The women are competing for a management contract with Hadid's company and the opportunity to be represented by IMG Models in New York. Expected to appear throughout the series are Hadid's celebrity daughters Gigi and Bella, supermodels Devon Windsor and Alek Wek, and fashion designers Tommy Hilfiger.
Yolanda Hadid, 53, is a model and television personality, best known for her work in the reality show Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
