Oxygen models reality show

Dickinson signs on for cabler skein

Former “America’s Next Top Model” judge Janice Dickinson has signed with women’s cabler Oxygen for a reality show centered on her efforts to establish her own modeling agency.

Dickinson will exec produce with reality producer Stuart Krasnow (“Average Joe”).

Oxygen programming prexy Debby Beece said she’s eyeing an early 2006 premiere should the project move forward to series.

Dickinson’s a “dynamic and fearless character,” the exec said. “If nothing else, she’s always surprising, and it’s made for some good TV.”

Untitled docusoap will follow Dickinson as she works to start a modeling business. She’s in the middle of recruiting her first clients.

“We love the idea of women entrepreneurs, and we’ve done shows about that in a more earnest vain,” Beece said. “But we hope Janice’s show is going to be more contemporary and fun. “Oxygen is coming off its highest-rated quarter in history, averaging 223,000 viewers in primetime, up 27% from last year and 34% in adults 18-49.
