Project Runway season 6 debuts on Lifetime next month, finally
If you’re a Tim Gunn nerd like me, you breathlessly followed the messy legal battle that threatened the future of Project Runway, then breathed a long sigh of relief when it was announced that the show would indeed air this summer on Lifetime.
It was just a matter of when.
Well, Lifetime has released its summer lineup. Project Runway Season 6 debuts August 20 at 10 p.m. Afterward, Lifetime will air Models of the Runway, which shows the competition from the models’ perspective. Those skinny ladies also face elimination each week. The model paired with the winning designer on Project Runway lands a photo spread in Marie Claire magazine.
No word on the future of the show Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style, which also aired on Bravo, the former home of Project Runway. The rumor mill says Bravo cancelled the show and Gunn’s shopping it to the Lifetime folks.
When did Lifetime become so...cool?
