New Video Promo For Season Six of Project Runway on Lifetime

Do You Think Project Runway Can Succeed on Lifetime?

We're less than two months away from the launch of Project Runway on Lifetime, and while part of me won't believe the long-lost season six actually exists till it's on my TV on Aug. 20, the network's PR machine is already trying to whip up some enthusiasm. But while I've generally been feeling positive about the show's move to Lifetime — hey, at least it's airing somewhere — this new ad gives me pause. If Project Runway usually hits at Bloomingdale's level on the glam scale, this promo is more JC Penney. Its message seems to be something like, "Look! Women love Project Runway! All kinds of women! Even some men! It's just a show for regular folk!"

Now, I'm all for Lifetime drumming up even more excitement for the show and getting it some more viewers. And, to be fair, I haven't seen Lifetime's version. But this ad is making me wonder all over again: Will Runway work on Lifetime? Or will it feel out of style?

I love PR, and will continue watching but that commercial was just horrible. Now I'm afraid I'll end up doing episode recaps with my mother-in-law, not cool Lifetime.

This ad is way too family friendly. Blah. I think Lifetime will just turn it into family fare and thus all the things that I loved about PR will just head out the door. Also Lifetime is not a cool channel. Its this lame channel of tabloid-like tv shows and movies. Who actually takes Lifetime seriously?!! No I won't be watching it on Lifetime. *gag*

Tim Gunn will "Make it Work" no matter what network PR is on.

I love love love Project Runway!!!! But I have to admit that Buzz hit the nail on the head when she said that the promo seemed JC Penney. I'm gonnz watch regardless bc The Fashion Show has done nothing for me!

I don't really watch any show because of the channel its on. I watch the show because I like the show... so yah, I think it'll do fine

I disagree Buzz - everybody is already on the edge of their seats excited because it's been so long, and I don't think we need another run-of-the-mill preview that's going to give away what's going to happpen. I like that this ad uses real people and tries to appeal to the Lifetime demographic as well as the already loyal PR fans. besides, just because the marketing is different doesn;t mean that the show will. and seriously, Heidi and Tim are just the cutest! I can't wait...

This ad isn't doing it for me — I mean, come on, the season was already filmed...we all know that...can't they even give us a tidbit of actual footage to get us excited?!

I could care less what network PR is on, as long as it's on and they didn't change anything!

I'm not sure about how well it will do ... I'm worried , if it's not the same I'll be very sad , I ah-dore PR . If it's all weirded out , count me out .

I think PR will be just fine, but don't expect me to start watching other things on Lifetime. I think if they really want people to give the network a shot, they would just have to change the name at this point. And not something silly like SyFy. :-P
