Bell makes Brave move

E! Entertainment in Canada has commissioned a reality series centred on model Jenna Talackova. The Brave New Girl (8×30′, working title) will follow Talackova as she moves from her hometown Vancouver to chase her dreams in Toronto.

Talackova, who was born a man, gained notoriety in 2012 when she fought to participate in the Miss Universe Canada pageant. The beauty contest had a prohibition against the transgendered, which the organisation later revoked. The series will include Talackova and two friends – a documentary filmmaker and another model.

The Bell Media-owned entertainment channel plans to air the series this fall. It comes from producer/distributor Peacock Alley Entertainment (High Tech Rednecks, Money Moron).

“Brave New Girl presents E!’s pop culture-hungry audience the opportunity to enter the wildly entertaining world of reality television, all from a uniquely Canadian perspective,” said Bell’s VP of specialty channels, Catherine MacLeod.
