Project Runway Returns!
Darlings, we chalked this up to an April Fool’s joke the first time we heard it, but the legitimate sites are reporting it now, so it looks like our long national nightmare is soon to be over. Now we can all go back to bitching about Lifetime.
“NBC Universal, The Weinstein Co. and Lifetime have resolved their disputes,” NBC Universal announced in a statement Wednesday. “The Weinstein Co. will pay NBCU for the right to move Project Runway to Lifetime. All of the parties are pleased with the outcome.”
“In a statement Wednesday, Harvey Weinstein said, “I want to personally congratulate [NBC president] Jeff Zucker and NBCU on their success in the litigation and thank Jeff for resolving this in a professional manner. We look forward to working together on our ongoing projects.”
Added Lifetime President and CEO Andrea Wong, “I couldn’t be more excited that Lifetime will bring its viewers an amazing, all-new season of Project Runway THIS SUMMER. All of us at Lifetime are thrilled to move forward with Heidi, Tim, Nina, Michael, The Weinstein Company and the entire Project Runway team.”
