In a new series brought to you by Sideline Productions - The Model Scouts - will follow the journey of 12 young Irish girls who compete to win a contract with IMG, one of the most prestigious modelling agencies in the world. IMG Scouts Jeni Rose and David Cunningham travel the length and breadth of Ireland, holding open castings as they look for the face of Ireland's next model sensation.

One of these girls is about to have her life transformed - as she will be launched on the international modelling stage and follow in the footsteps of IMG models Lara Stone, Lily Cole, Gisele Bndchen and Liv Tyler.
