Vogue legend Andre Leon Talley lands TV deal

The flamboyant Vogue magazine contributing editor was hired by Tyra Banks to act as a panellist on her hit show America’s Next Top Model in 2010, but stepped down from the role after three series.

He has now signed a deal with U.S. production company Electus to reportedly front his own talk show.

Marc Beckman of DMA United – the company behind the deal between Talley and Electus – says, “We think a television platform is an ideal showcase for Andre’s personality to shine and bring together his amazing network of personal contacts, ranging from designers to musicians to politicians.”
