International pop superstar Rihanna is producing and appearing in a new TV fashion series for Sky Living.
The as-yet-untitled series will see Rihanna both in front of and behind the cameras in her first gig as executive producer on a TV show.
Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts (pictured, left) will host the new show, which will tour Britain in search of the next generation of undiscovered designer talent.
Over ten weeks the unknown designers will be challenged by Rihanna and Nicola to create outfits for a string of musicians and celebrities, with the series’ eventual winner earning the chance to design a unique stage outfit for Rihanna’s Wireless Festival performance in Hyde Park in July 2012.
Rihanna said: “I’ve always had a great love of fashion. It’s a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I’ve grown into the person and artist I am today.
“I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage. I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show.”
The series will transmit on Sky Living HD this summer.
