'Top Model' is a Ten in Australia


SYDNEY -- "America's Next Top Model" will get a free-to-air network outlet in Australia, with Network Ten acquiring broadcast rights for the series from CBS International.

The sixth series of the reality show created and hosted by model Tyra Banks, will debut on Ten at 9:30 p.m. Friday, July 6.

Paynet Foxtel holds and retains first run rights and local format rights to the program.

The eighth season of the show premiered on Foxtel's Fox 8 last week. Fox 8 has had significant success this year with the third season of "Australia's Next Top Model," which became the highest-rated series ever on Australian pay TV.

Ten's chief programming officer, David Mott, said: "America's Next Top Model has been an enduring and popular franchise for Foxtel that will play brilliantly to Ten's audience."
