The Swan Is Coming Back...Sort Of

Do you remember the 2004 show The Swan? Women underwent extreme makeovers and competed in a beauty pageant at the end of each episode to see which ugly duckling (their words, not mine) turned into a beautiful swan? It's back...in a way, anyway.

Rather than featuring everyday women, the Fox special, called Celebrity Swan, will feature 'celebrities' who are given a chance to revamp their looks and their images.

Per EW.com:

Here’s the official logline for the two-hour special: “Celebrity Swan will feature female celebrities and will offer these popular women the incredible opportunity to undergo physical, psychological and career changes as cameras follow them through the transformative process. This opportunity will allow these women to come back better than ever, have a second chance at personal and career redemption and re-introduce themselves to their supportive fans in a whole new way.”

While casting hasn't been finalized, Deadline.com has heard rumors that Erin Moran from Happy Days and Monica Lewinsky are potential candidates. I don't think I'd really call either of them a celebrity at this point, but we certainly use the term loosely these days, so I guess they count. Plus, no self-respecting celebrity would actually do this show, so the producers' options are probably limited. Although there are lots of wannabe one-time reality stars out there, so who knows what will happen? I, for one, will be watching.

Hey....did you know you can buy a book about The Swan? Check it out!!!
