Thomas has show designs

Skein follows celeb's search for clothing line financers

NEW YORK — Paula Thomas was a Bond girl (1985’s “A View to a Kill”) and the favorite fashion model of Givenchy’s Julien MacDonald. Now, as a budding clothes designer, she’s about to become the star of a reality series centered on her new career.

Co-produced by Hearst Entertainment and Tenth Street Prods., “The Paula Thomas Project” has begun taping Thomas as she makes the rounds trying to get investors to bankroll her line of clothing under the umbrella title Wylde Child.

Tenth Street’s cameras followed Thomas at the Los Angeles Fashion Shows two weeks ago, and they will continue for the next year recording her as she designs her rock ‘n’ roll-inspired clothing line and meets with manufactures, editors and buyers.

Project should culminate with the introduction of the Thomas line at the L.A. Fashion Shows in October.

Goal of Hearst and Tenth Street is to secure a deal with a cable network and deliver the series for next fall. The number of episodes will depend on how compelling Thomas’ odyssey turns out to be, as captured by the Huang family (Joy, Henry and Daniel), who run Tenth Street.

The Hearst Entertainment Prods. executives involved in the project are exec VP Jerry Shevick and VP of documentary and reality programming Bari Carelli.

Hearst Corp. is half-owner of Lifetime TV and 37% owner of A&E and the History Channel.
