The Runway Moves to Lifetime

April 1, 2009
It's official, folks: Project Runway, a Bravo mainstay for five seasons, has officially moved to Lifetime Television. As you may recall, the beloved gay-friendly series got involved in a law suit last year when The Weinstein Company moved the show to Lifetime without Bravo's permission. PR: 6 has been languishing in obscurity for months, with Heidi, Tim and the whole gang having shot the entire season, not knowing if it would ever be seen. NBC Universal, Bravo's parent company, issued the following statement at 1 pm PST today:
NBC Universal, The Weinstein Company and Lifetime have resolved their disputes.  The Weinstein Company will pay NBCU for the right to move Project Runway to Lifetime.  All of the parties are pleased with the outcome.  Harvey Weinstein added, "I want to personally congratulate 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.”
So, what do you say, Runway fans? Will you make the switch? Or will you stay true-blue to Bravo?
