That nasty legal scuffle that put "‘Project Runway" on hold this season?
Let the cat fights commence.
On Wednesday, all parties involved announced that the lawsuit that had delayed the new season had been settled out of court and that the show would air sometime this summer, on Lifetime.
“NBC Universal, The Weinstein Company and Lifetime have resolved their disputes,” NBA announced in a news release.
The Weinstein Co. will pay NBC Universal an undisclosed sum to move the show from Bravo to Disney-owned Lifetime.
NBCU, which owns Bravo, had claimed that the Weinstein Co. transferred the fan-rich “Runway” to Lifetime without giving NBCU the chance to match the offer, per its contract.
So why all these folks have spent the last few months trying to “make it work,” fans have been left with nothing to do but dream ofTim Gunn
Not to be left completely out in the cold, Bravo announced Wednesday its new “Runway”-like competition called “The Fashion Show,” withIsaac Mizrahi and Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland.
Taking a page from that other reality show juggernaut, “American Idol,” viewers will choose the ultimate winner on this show, and the winner’s designs will be sold in stores.
