After years of floating aimlessly and being thrown life’s crumbs, a gaggle of self- proclaimed “ugly ducklings” will swim upstream to be transformed into a bevy of graceful beauties. THE SWAN, the new series that turns a fantasy into reality by mirroring the classic fairy tale.
The groundbreaking series will turn 17 average-looking women into drop-dead-gorgeous beauties. Contestants will be given access to every possible resource to bring about these radical transformations: plastic surgeons, a cosmetic and reconstructive dentist, a trainer, a nutritional plan, therapy and life coaching.
Two women will be featured in each episode, but only the most beautiful and transformed one will be selected to compete in the Swan Pageant and further her chances of being crowned “The Swan.” The series promises to be especially dramatic because the contestants will not be permitted to see themselves in a mirror during the three-month transformation process.
The series will culminate in the selection of “The Swan” in a dazzling, suspense-filled pageant on the two-hour season finale.
Hosting THE SWAN is Amanda Byram, best known in the United States as the host of the FOX series, “Paradise Hotel”. The Irish native has also hosted “Miss World” and is well known in the UK as a guest host on “Liquid News” and host of “The Big Breakfast,” “Hot TV” and “Ireland A.M.”
THE SWAN is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Galan Entertainment in association with A. Smith & Company Productions. Arthur Smith and Nely Galan serve as executive producers. Kent Weed is co-executive producer. The series was created by Nely Galan.
