The queen of America’s Next Top Model is hopping networks for a laugh.

Tyra Banks will guest-star on ABC family comedy black-ish, the network confirmed on Tuesday. (TVLine first reported the news last month.)

Banks will play a version of herself, popping up as the best friend of Dre (Anthony Anderson) for a story line that takes a cue from series creator Kenya Barris’ lifelong friendship with the supermodel/host/business woman.

Season 2 kicks off Wednesday at 9:30 p.m., though the episode featuring Banks won’t likely air until early 2016.

America’s Next Top Model began Cycle 22 last month on the CW. Banks also hosts the syndicated talk show FABlife, whch launched last week.
