Elaine Welteroth's Life Story Will Become a TV Series
The Project Runway judge's memoir, More Than Enough, is in development.
After spending a decade breaking ground as an award-winning journalist, Elaine Welteroth brought her talents to television in 2019 — and she's got some big news for the new year.
The Bravo's Project Runway judge's 2019 memoir, More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say), could one day become a TV series, now that it has been optioned for development by Paramount Television Studios and Anonymous Content.
More Than Enough reveals the journey of how she became the youngest person and only the second African-American ever to hold the Editor-in-Chief title in Condé Nast's 107-year history when she took the reins at Teen Vogue and transformed it into a vital voice of a generation.
According to Hollywood Reporter, Elaine will co-create the series and serve as an executive producer.
"I'm used to being behind the scenes. I was an editor for 10 years, so now suddenly I'm in front of the camera and I'm on the other side of the red carpet and being asked questions — so it's a transition for sure," Elaine told The Daily Dish when she started on Project Runway.
"I just went for it. I'm doing this with people that I love and respect and admire and have so much fun with that it, honestly, does not feel like work," she continued. "It doesn't feel like this big transition that I had to prepare for. The key is to be yourself. As long as you can be comfortable, have fun in the moment, I think that's what matters more than anything. And luckily because of my cast, that's kind of all we did was joke around and cry with the designers. We just felt really invested and present, so you kind forget that cameras are there. They sort of fade away."
"Manifesting," she wrote of the series news on Instagram.
