Oxygen has picked up 10-episode reality series “The Janice Dickinson Project,” which is set to debut in spring 2006. The series features supermodel Janice Dickinson as she starts her own Hollywood modeling agency.

Ms. Dickinson served as a judge in the first four seasons of the UPN reality show “America’s Next Top Model.” On “Project” she will audition and choose five models to be the first signed by her agency, according to an Oxygen press release.

The series, from Krasnow Productions and FremantleMedia North America, will also focus on Ms. Dickinson’s efforts to balance her new business with her role as a mother. Ms. Dickinson gained fame as a model in the 1970s and has claimed to have coined the term “supermodel.” She will also serve as executive producer of the series.
