Project Runway Gets Two Spinoffs on Lifetime


Though the whole Project Runway vs. NBC lawsuit is yet to be settled, Lifetime is moving forward as though it will be airing the show in the Fall for sure. And that's not all: At a presentation on Monday, Harvey Weinstein — whose company produces Project Runway — told reporters that Lifetime will be airing not one but two spinoffs of the show around the same time as the show's November premiere.

The first of them doesn't have a title yet, but Weinstein said it will look at the Project Runway world through the eyes of the show's models. The second, dubbed Project Pygmalion, is a makeover series that will turn its winner into a high-society socialite.

Now, I do love a good reality show, but doesn't that seem like a bit . . . much? Especially if both shows and Runway are airing around the same time? I would think that Lifetime would want to be very careful about Runway-related overkill, especially because there will be another season of the show airing on Bravo sometime between now and November.

Also of note: Michael Kors is for sure on board for the move to Lifetime, but Nina Garcia isn't yet — though he noted that everyone would like for her to continue on the show. It sounds like her recent departure from Elle, which was a Runway sponsor, is an issue. Meanwhile, Bravo has its own programming presentation scheduled for Tuesday, which should be interesting to say the least!

What do you mean Bravo will be airing a new season? Did they make one before Project's move to Lifetime?

I'm very worried about Lifetime getting their hands on this show. Meredith Baxter-Birney will be hosting in no time.

I don't see why the wannabe model would want to be a wannabe socialite. These people baffle me.

My sentiments exactly coachluvr33. and colormesticky! The socialite spin-off idea is cheesy.

Over-saturation will *kill* Project Runway. I'm not liking this news.

waaay overkill. don't networks learn? they kill so many shows by airing them too much or making too many spinoffs. who wants to be a millionaire? seriously. and i still can't see this show on lifetime at all. i kinda hope nbc wins the lawsuit.

I agree with colormesticky-as long as Tim is there, who cares? I like Michael Kors too, but Nina? Eh, not so much. I actually don't care if Heidi is there.

As long as Tim stays, I'm happy. And I don't see any reality show socialite being accepted by the real ones, unless they get to be on TV too.

And who is going to host the pygmalion show? a Brit probably, and what will they have these Lizas in waiting do? probably horrific things that "socialites" have too.....
