The series follows self-proclaimed world's first supermodel, "Surreal Life" alumna and former " America's Next Top Model" judge Janice Dickinsonas she prepares to launch her own modeling agency, also called The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. Dickinson believes that the next logical step for her career is to form a modeling agency, using the credibility that her 30 years of experience has given her. The agency opened for business in November 2005.
The first season follows her opening the agency, including the difficulty in finding models, getting them "camera ready," obtaining financial backing and establishing a reputation for her agency. Subsequent seasons have followed the development of the agency and its models. A number of the male models are openly
gay, and a number of the agency's clients are gay-oriented businesses. This has resulted in many of the episodes and storylines being gay in theme.

Janice Dickinson decides to open her very own self-titled modeling agency. She works in collaboration with business partner Peter Hamm to handle the affairs of the agency, yet creative differences set them apart.
The show begins when Janice holds an open call in her original location, responded by approximately 500 model-wannabes. After hiring 5 amateur models, the location of the agency moves to a bigger area. Janice finds a partner in Peter Hamm, who causes conflicts between her, himself and the subsequent models that get hired. As time passes, the agency suffers financial loss as Janice reveals she has been borrowing money from Peter to fund the agency, and in order to survive, several models are to be retrenched. At the end of the season, the agency launches their billboard at Sunset Boulevard, and zed cards are administered to the new roster of models.
The increasing popularity of the agency leads Janice to becoming busier. She returns from vacation only to find some models upset at how Peter has been handling their careers.
When the original roster is affected after some models leave, Janice decides to open another open call, and the overwhelming response has Janice confident that her new roster will be fresher than before, causing jealousy between the existing models and the new models. The season features the infamous
AussieBumincident, where Janice is fired after speaking ill of her AussieBum client off-camera, and the inspirational coming outof ex- Survivorcontestant J. P. Calderonthrough a gay magazine.
Janice sets history in the modeling world by opening her very own Latin Division as well as her third open casting. Promising models TJ Wilk and Stina Jeffers leave the agency, the former being unsatisfied with Peter Hamm's work ethics, and the latter having signed to
Ford Models. Another open call introduces several new models. Janice hints opening an agency branch at Miami. Her business relationship with Peter is finally put to an end when complications put her credibility with clients at jeopardy.
