Project Runway made it work
Last year, the show was moved from Bravo to Lifetime Networks, spurring a hairy legal battle that threatened the show’s future (and the happiness of millions who love to hate judge Nina Garcia).
But all that was settled this week. The first episode of Project Runway’s 6th season will air late this summer on Lifetime, probably after some cheesy movie about a single mom struggling to raise her rebellious teenage daughter and closeted gay son. (I’m going to Tivo that, too.)
Next month, Bravo will debut its own Project Runway spinoff, The Fashion Show, featuring celebrity judges Isaac Mizrahi, Kelly Rowland and Fern Mallis, credited as the creator of NY Fashion Week. Lifetime is also set to run some Project Runway “companion series.”
