Naomi Campbell to star in web series

Naomi Campbell will star in her own web series.

The 44-year-old supermodel - who has appeared as a judge on modelling show 'The Face' and most recently in the new US drama 'Empire' - has been announced as the executive producer and star of 'I Am Naomi' which will air on Yahoo! Screen.

The show will offer viewers "a backstage pass" into the life of the raven-haired beauty "as she spends time with the world's most powerful and influential people".

Yahoo! Style editor in chief, Joe Zee, told Fashionista: "I think there's something so unpredictable and spontaneous about her.

"But my favourite part about Naomi is that a lot of people don't know how hysterical she is, full of bites. You've seen her on TV before and she's always so funny and really engaging."

The programme - which will be a cross between a talk show and a fly on the wall reality TV series - will feature a host of A-list guests, and Joe is hoping Naomi will spend some time with her superstar pals Oprah Winfrey and Justin Bieber during filming.

He said: "So many different people from different walks of life love her. She was with Hilary Clinton the other night and she knows Oprah and Justin Bieber is obsessed with her. I thought, 'Who else can get the cross section of people that Naomi can?'"

The air date for the series is yet to be confirmed.
