Project Runway Returns In August!

I have been enjoying Fashion Show and have felt that if PR didn’t come back soon, FS was definitely a worthy replacement. It has become clear that Lifetime had better get the show on the air soon or people just might have moved on.

Check out this timeline of troubles the show has faced and read the rest of the article for insights into season 6. 

Beginning in April 2008, the hit series became the disputed pawn in a trio of lawsuits between The Weinstein Company (which owns a majority stake in the show), NBC Universal (parent company to the series’ original network, Bravo), and Lifetime (which bought the rights for seasons 6 through 10).

The legal deadlock kept the fate of the entire series hanging in the balance for almost a year. ”By the end of production [of season 6],” says new exec producer Jon Murray, ”we started to joke around, like, ‘Are we going to have to show this to our friends and families in our living rooms?”’

Nope. Thanks to a resolution reached in April, “Runway” will soon be back in almost everyone’s living room. Season 6 premieres Aug. 20 on Lifetime, amid a blowout marketing campaign that is one of the biggest in the network’s 25-year history.
