I am currently writing my first book which is fiction and concerns a modelling competition - half of the book is about the competition the other half is not. The modelling component gives more than a passing nod to the programme America's Next Top Model. The names of the judges have been changed and the models are characters that are completely original but, there is a panel judging the girls and they are voted off chapter after chapter in the book or in the television world episode after episode.

If you are able to assist me with this I would be very grateful as I don't want to spend the next six months writing only to find out that no matter how good (or bad) it is it can't be published. Thanks for the help.

This is only my opinion but... I really can't see how they could object.

This certainly is not a copyright infringement. The only possible potential cause for complaint I can image would be if your book deliberately sets out to malign America's Next Top Model.
