The Here TV docuseries Road to the Runway—which focuses on trans+ women models—will debut Friday, Aug. 5.

The series profiles the 20 hopefuls competing in this year's annual Slay Model search. Cameras follow the women to their hometowns to uncover their roots: the environments they were reared in and the circumstances that helped shape them into the women they are today.

Among the spots visited in Road to the Runway are Chicago, Atlanta, Boston and Florida.

Slay Model Management models have appeared in campaigns for MAC Cosmetics, Hyundai, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue Germany, Macy's, Biore', Eva Mendes for NY and Co., and Savage X Fenty. They have appeared on television in POSE, Law and Order: SVU, Project Runway and Netflix's Next in Fashion. The agency's first-signed and most recognized supermodel, Arisce Wanzer, who appears in Road to the Runway, has been featured on TV shows like MTV's Ex on the Beach and in campaigns for Marco Marco, Opening Ceremony, Truvada, AT&T, Lululemon and Lucky Jeans.

According to a press release, "Road to the Runway is an important reminder that these Trans models are more than mannequins: they are daughters, friends, and partners in love, with stories that deserve to be heard."
