How far will Lee’s Summit’s Sock 101 make it on “Project Runway: Fashion Startup”?

In a preview clip of Episode 3, airing Thursday at 9:30 p.m. on Lifetime, the company’s co-founders Dave Feyerabend and Kelly Yarborough are among the business owners pitching their concepts to secure investors. The show calls them “two Midwestern men trying their hand at the fashion game.”

In the clip, Yarborough says: “Our vision is to be the world’s largest sock-of-the-month club.”

To celebrate their appearance, Sock 101 is hosting a watch party at No Other Pub, with half of the proceeds benefiting the Sean D. Biggs Memorial Foundation. Tickets are $20 at ow.ly/uNvn305JX04

Mindy Kaling in Kansas?

It looks like middle America, conservative-not-conservative Kansas will be one of the stars of a new Mindy Kaling show on ABC.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Kaling and Ed Weeks, her co-star on “The Mindy Project,” are partnering on a comedy series about a “liberal lesbian couple Laurel and Marisa who move with their teenage son to Laurel’s conservative hometown in Kansas to find that their assumptions about Middle America might just be wrong.”

The show is yet untitled, but we’ll start taking guesses on which town they move to. And whether they’ll actually be in Kansas.
