Oxygen's "Beast' takes over Web


NEW YORK -- Oxygen is launching a Web-exclusive offshoot to its series "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency," the network said Monday.

The six-episode series, dubbed "Abbey & Janice: Beauty & The Best," will debut on the company's broadband channel SheDidWhat.tv on Dec. 4, the same night the third season of the Dickinson reality series debuts on the cable channel.

The Web series, the second online-only series produced by Oxygen, will follow Dickinson as she mentors Abbey Clancy, the runner up in the U.K.'s "Next Top Model" competition.

Oxygen was recently acquired by NBC Universal for $925 million.
