E! 'Fashion' hostess, model inks development deal

Disney’s Buena Vista Television and ABC have inked a development deal with Emme, a model and host of the E! cabler’s “Fashion Emergency” series.

There’s no word yet on any specific projects in the works for the one-name femme, described as a “plus-sized supermodel,” who was recently added to the Revlon stable. Buena Vista and ABC inked a joint holding deal with Emme, which gives Disney’s syndie distrib and its network the flexibility to work together or separately on developing an Emme vehicle.

Before her modeling career took off, Emme served a stint as a reporter and anchor for NBC affil KNAZ in Phoenix. She’s repped by William Morris Agency’s Mark Itkin, Henry Reisch, Brian Dubin and Adam Scher.
