Project Runway Lawsuit Settles: Show Will Air on Lifetime, Not Bravo

Project Runway Lawsuit Settles: Show Will Air on Lifetime

Tim Gunn will be making it work on our TVs again before too long after all: NBC Universal and Lifetime have settled their lawsuit over the fate of Project Runway, and the decision means the show will air on Lifetime, not Bravo, from now on.

A statement from NBC said the Weinstein Company — which produces the show and set off the legal battle when it opted to take Runway to Lifetime — has agreed to pay for the right to move the show to a new channel. "All of the parties are pleased with the outcome," the statement said.

Meanwhile, a statement from Lifetime president Andrea Wong said, "Lifetime is the perfect home for this outstanding program as well as its companion series, Models of the Runway" — the model-themed spinoff that the Weinstein Company first mentioned last year. The statement says Runway will be on the air this Summer.

An entire season of Runway is ready to go, and a somewhat awkward finale filmed in February at New York Fashion Week. Could it really be on the air in just a month or two? Fingers crossed!

One of the three finalists is a friend's soon to be sister-in-law. I don't even know which line in the finale was hers, so we all cannot wait to see it. Yay!!

It won't be the same on Lifetime. I actually am disappointed but I have to watch. I am glad that it is back.

I'm glad that it will show, but I am pissed that Lifetime is getting it. I just don't want to support anything that network does.

I am definitely happy they have finally figured this out, but I wish the show was staying on Bravo. I just think what Weinstein did was extremely shady and I don't really get what the appeal is of lifetime. I can't remember the last time i watched lifetime.

FINALLY - i'm really happy that they finally resolved this and i think that it's not a moment too soon. i just wish that it had been before fashion week so the designers could have gotten the recognition that they deserved.
