Project Runway Accessories Spinoff Coming to Lifetime
“EXCLUSIVE: I’ve just heard that Harvey Weinstein has succeeded in selling the spinoff Project Runway: Accessories to The Weinstein Co’s hit TV fashion contest show on Lifetime. Exactly how this will work remains to be seen: making jewelry or hats sounds easy. But constructing handbags or cobbling shoes? This I gotta see. “
Yeah, we’ve gotta see it too. From a sitting-on-the-couch-and-judging perspective (e.g., “That bag is hideous!” “Those earrings look like whorehouse doorknobs!” “What are those shoes made out of, ham?”), one can see the entertainment value. On the other hand, we’re having a difficult time seeing how they can stretch it out to an hour. It’ll be interesting to see if any of the permanent PR cast members, like Tim or Heidi, will deign to work on the spinoff. We doubt it. They’re probably going to produce this one for a lot less money than Project Runway. Call it a hunch. Still, we’re intrigued. Are you?
