Project Runway Too Fierce For Lifetime
Project Runway fans can all take a collective sigh of relief today, for the hit show is staying on the Bravo network—for now.
The show, hosted by the beautiful Heidi Klum, was supposedly moving to Lifetime for it’s sixth season premiere in January of 2009. However, a judge on Friday ruled that the show cannot be moved from the NBC Universal-owned Bravo network.
After the ruling, NBC issued the following statement: “The overwhelming evidence demonstrated that the Weinstein Company violated NBC Universal’s right of first refusal to future cycles of Project Runway. After hearing all of the evidence, the court issued an order prohibiting the Weinstein Company from taking the show or any spinoff to Lifetime.”
