We’re not sure what to make of this news, but according to New York Magazine’s Vulture blog, Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank is shopping around a fashion-themed game show of which, presumably, she would be the host.
The project is reportedly in the early stages of development with the CW — home of Gossip Girl and America’s Next Top Model — so the theme fits, but what we can’t figure out is: why Ms. Swank? She certainly knows how to shut down a red carpet, but it’s not exactly like she’s struggling for movie parts — so why burnish her brand with what Vulture described as “a studio-based game show in which self-described fashion diehards will be tested on their knowledge of style and fashion, with one winning fashionista earning big prizes”?
While we’re not sure about Swank’s involvement, we will keep our fingers crossed for a Jeopardy-esque fashion trivia game. Finally, our unending rolodex of model names will be put to good use!
