‘Project Runway’s Identical Twin Being Born?
NBC Universal recently lost Runway to Lifetime, but has filed a court injunction to keep the show from appearing.
A replacement series, Fashion House, is said to be very similar. Will Gisele Bundchen be hosting?
“It’s a shameless copycat show. The way they are doing the casting, and the format of the show, is just like Project Runway. It’s a rip-off, ” an insider says.
NBC is suing Lifetime and the Weinstein Co. for not allowing them the right to first refusal after Lifetime purchased ProjRun for $150 million for the next five years.
Runway producers are reportedly afraid that Bravo will air the new Fashion House show in an attempt to capture their stalled show’s audience.
